Yin Yoga Workshop with Sara
Saturday, December 20 3:30pm - 6pm
Peel away the layers created by unbalanced habits of over-doing, over-efforting and over-achieving through Yin Yoga. Yin Yoga emphasizes the connective tissues through a relaxed practice of long, passive holds in specific postures. These asanas gently stretch and rehabilitate the connective tissues that form our joints, allowing us to maintain and restore joint flexibility. Not only does this bring balance to our more active yoga practice, but it also allows us space to drop the outward going activity of the mind-body and experience ourselves as we are in this moment, without an agenda. By creating space for softening both our physical body and our mental state, we move inward to examine how our daily habits are reflected in our lives and allow energy to be redirected in a more harmonious way. We can then strengthen our ability to widen our sphere of what sensations and feelings we believe are "acceptable" in both ourselves and others, which creates a calmer abidance in the face of internal and external stress.
