The Art of Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a slow, yet powerful practice that targets the yin tissues of the body (fascia, bones, ligaments & joints), and supports overall wellness and balance. As an integrative practice, yin naturally lends itself to mindful and meditative states of mind, which can lead to full-bodied awareness and transformation. Sequences are artfully designed to cultivate vitality in the body, stillness in the mind and nourishment for the soul.

 

The Science of Yin Yoga

The science of yin yoga has foundations in Eastern models of health and wellness, including modern meridian theory and the subtle body. This training offers an integrative approach to working with the mind-body based in Western models of somatic and transpersonal psychology.  

 

The Ritual of Yin Yoga

Rituals are part of everyday life and often include habits of daily living that support structure, nourishment and balance. The ritual of yin yoga offers an intentional container for tuning into the deeper messages of your body. During this training you’ll have the opportunity to practice systematically releasing habitual patterns of stress and tension in the body and cultivate healthier rituals of relating to your mind, body and soul.
