Yin yoga is a slow, meditative practice that gently stretches the body and helps quieten the mind. In Eastern traditions, Yin is a complement to Yang; yin yoga can therefore become a complement of a more dynamic practice, cultivating a sense of letting go. The practice consists in a series of poses that are held for a substantial period of time (3-5 mins). By switching the parasympathetic nervous system, this practice helps reverse the effects of stress and cultivate a sense of equanimity.
This workshop invites you to spend 2 hours connecting body, mind and breath in a soft yet deep yoga practice. All poses have modifications, so beginners to yoga are welcome. Props will be used extensively. Since poses are mostly floor-based, please bring warmer clothes and socks!
