This workshop is an invitation to play with the balance between Yin (female) and Yang (male), as yoga styles. Yang style practices are stimulating and toning while Yin practices are restorative and soothing.
The workshop will include:
The purpose of the workshop is to connect with the body; release old patterns in the body, mind and breath; release physical and energetic toxins; practice letting go, bringing the focus into the present moment; unblock energetic channels so the Chi (life force) can flow freely; practice slowness, awareness and stillness, and cultivate the art of listening to one’s own heart.
Mornings will be spent working with the liquid body. Through the practice of Vinyasa Flow, dance and free movement participants will journey into the liquid freedom of their body as it meets the structure of yoga asana. This part of the work is characterized by its grounding quality, beauty and grace. Also, this is when calories will be burned.
Afternoons will offer an exploration of the art of relaxation through yin/restorative practice. This type of practice gives space for the body to relax, heal and integrate, emphasizing “being” over “doing”. Quieting of the mind is the supreme focus of this work, moving toward deep relaxation and a meditative state.
