Yin Is In!
Yin Yoga is getting a lot of attention these days, probably because our “yang” dominated modern lifestyles, call for more balance.
Daily stress impacts our body, mind and soul. Though we long to be at ease and enjoy every moment of life, we tend to `keep going’, because we don’t know how else to `keep up.’
The Yin Yoga Therapy practice is designed to create space for just that, to rejuvenate the body, clear the mind, open up the heart and allow energetic healing to take place.
So welcome to the Yin Side; an attempt to bring balance and healing to our modern life.
Yin Yoga Therapy Teacher Trainings in a nutshell are all about how to:
♦ maintain and expand flexibility and mobility,
rejuvenate the body
♦ practice mindfulness in daily life,
create peace in our mind
♦ heal through the Daoist wisdom of the meridian chi flow in our bodies,
harmonise body, mind and soul
Yin Yoga is a unique opportunity to learn to release physical and emotional tension, free stagnant or blocked energy and cultivate a peaceful quality of mind.
We’ll put you on the path to acquire the knowledge and practical experience to earn the Yoga Alliance Certificate and share this wisdom.
The term Yin Yoga comes from the ancient Daoist tradition of yin and yang. Yang relates to rhythm and repetition, creating heat in the body. Yin is passive, cooling the body and calming the mind. Completely opposite forces and yet interconnected.
The peacefulness of the long-held static stretches in Yin Yoga, allow space for awareness, with an opportunity to reveal and release deep layers of tension held within our connective tissue. The healing wisdom of the Daoist philosophy and the meridians provides insight and guidance towards a healthy life.
By listening to our body closely we understand the transformative possibilities of being present with sensation, to embody mindfulness principles on a physical level. From this point we let the body guide the mind to the ultimate experience of peace, where we cultivate an attitude of loving-kindness towards ourselves. And from this perch of abundance, we are able to offer loving-kindness to the rest of the world.
Yin Yoga is so much more than physical stretching:
It is an art, a philosophy and a way to live.
