Yin is In
Yin Yoga is getting a lot of attention these days, probably because our predominantly “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, to actually unwind is easier said than done. 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 – rejuvenate the body, clear the mind, open up the heart and allow energetic healing to take place.
So, welcome to the Yin side! A dedicated attempt to bring balance and healing to our modern-day life.
Yin Yoga Therapy™ creates an opportunity 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, the practical experience and confidence to earn the certificate and share this wisdom.
What is Yin Yoga?
The term Yin Yoga comes from the ancient Daoist tradition of yin and yang. While yang relates to rhythm and repetition, creating heat in the body, yin is passive, cooling the body and calming the mind. Two completely opposite forces that are yet interconnected.
The peacefulness of the long-held static stretches in Yin Yoga allow space for awareness while accelerating the reveal and release of deep layers of tension held within our connective tissue.
The Daoist philosophy of the chi flow and healing wisdom of the meridians provide insight and guidance towards a healthier life.
Spread the knowledge…
By listening to our body closely we understand the transformative possibilities of being present with sensations, embodying mindfulness principles on a physical level.
From this point we enable the body to guide the mind to the ultimate experience of peace, where we cultivate an attitude of loving kindness towards ourselves. It is from this flow of abundance that we are able to offer loving kindness to the rest of the world.
How it helps…
When you awaken and align your body’s underlying energy, you activate your innate process of healing and transformation.
Together we will demystify how energy affects everything you do and feel and show you how to work with both – your body and mind. We practice sequences that are tailor-made to address physical, energetic or emotional issues where the alternative medicine aspect of Daoism offers the opportunity for deep healing and profound transformation.
You will learn simple principles, tools and practices that balance your body – which is how physical, emotional and spiritual healing begins – so you can build vitality, unravel energetic blockages and boost your immunity.
Yin Yoga Therapy™ is so much more than physical stretching.
Yin Yoga Therapy™ is an art, a philosophy and a way to live.
Tune in. Chill out. Stay yin.
