    Workshop - Yin + Gong

    Thursday, February 22nd, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
    Workshop - Yin + Gong

    Connect. Breathe. Open.
     
    Yin yoga is based on the Taoist principles of yin and yang - the opposite and complimentary concept with origins in nature. Yin is stable, balancing and cooling, while yang is moving, changing and heating.
     
    In the body, yin is represented by the stiffer connective tissues (ligaments, tendons and fascia) and yang by the more flexible muscles and blood.< Yin yoga is practiced passively with longer held poses (3-5 minutes) mainly focused on the lower body. This gives you an opportunity to open your body and turn inwards.
     
    In this all-levels practice, live gong music will allow you to release tension and soothe your nervous system. The vibrational nature of the gong is a re-aligning and dynamic experience.
     
    This fusion of yoga and sound will bring you into greater connection with your body and breath and bring more ease into your life.

    Cost: $30.00 per person.

  • Creating Balance Sequencing a Yang + Yin Class

    Creating Balance Sequencing a Yang + Yin Class

    Friday, February 23rd, 1:00pm - 7:00pm
    Creating Balance Sequencing a Yang + Yin Class
     

    With Jenna Switzer and Stéphane Ippersiel
    For ALL Yoga Teachers and Students!

    Yang + Yin Yoga blends two styles of yoga into one practice to combine the benefits of dynamic sequences and standing postures with more passively held yoga poses.

    Yang is the masculine principle – light, active, outward, moving, hot, retrospective. Yang Yoga builds on these principles and through traditional asana based practices helps us to strengthen and tone the body, improve flexibility and circulation, increase stamina, synchronize movement with breath, and remove tension and obstacles in the body to allow the breath and prana to flow.

    Yin is the feminine principle – passive, receptive, reflective, cool, and introspective. Yin Yoga builds on these principles and helps to stimulate the meridians (energy channels) bringing balance to the organs in the body, improve flexibility and joint mobility, calm and balance the mind and body and reduce stress and anxiety. Yin yoga also works deeply on the connective tissues (fascia, tendons and ligaments). In traditional yoga, this pair of complementary approaches is known as abhyasa (practice) and vairagya (dispassion). Together we will explore the combination of vigorous (yang) and passive (yin) postures to create balance in our personal practice and teaching.

    Dates and Times:
     
    The course is held over 3 days,Friday, February 23 to Sunday, February 25, 2018.

    Outline:
