Yin Yoga Workshop
withChrisBriggs at Worcester/Millbury
Sun, Oct 28, 2018 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Yin Yoga is a style of yoga where postures are slow and low. Slow meaning that poses are held from 1 to 5 minutes each and low in that there are no standing poses. The longer holds target the joints, ligaments, fascia and other connective tissues referred to as Yin tissues. Based on Meridian Theory, poses are chosen to focus on the health and balance of energy in organ tissues. Asanas include slow stretching in the deep connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, legs, and feet with some side bending, upper body and twisting work. Yin is a heavily meditative practice where the real work can be sitting in stillness with deep sensations and emotions. We practice turning inward, slowing down the breath, and listening to the mind, body, and heart. Some props may be used to make poses sustainable.
