This workshop will leave you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and connected to your body and your self.
We live in a world where it is considered normal to be busy. Rarely do we take time to rest and regenerate our energy. In Chinese Medicine, this constant rushing and working are said to use up all of our yang energy leaving us in a state of adrenal overload and burn-out. To avoid burn-out, we must build the Yin energy to harmonise the system.
Yin Yoga works with the Yin tissues in the body, the ligaments, tendons and bones.
These tissues that become compressed and bound up with stress and during our day to day activities.
Yin yoga takes the body through a series of extended floor based holds (3-5 minutes) providing traction on the joints, releasing fixation and the stress of compression. Yin yoga incorporates a strong meditation component and is an excellent stress release therapy.
Benefits of yin yoga and meditation practice may include:
- Detoxification & regeneration of cells
- Hydration of tissue
- Release of emotional blockages
- Release of energy blockages (chakra and meridian systems)
- Calming of the nervous system
- Enhanced mood
- Enhanced sleep
