Bridge the gap of an active life to a meditative life. While practicing stillness in postures with longer holds, one’s mind begins to quiet down and allow greater awareness and understanding of oneself to emerge. Yin yoga is based on the Taoist concepts of balancing the Yin and the Yang, the opposite and complementary principles in nature. With our busy lifestyles our bodies tighten up from mental tension and causing ailments and lack of mobility which lead to discomfort and pain. Yin yoga postures give an opportunity for deeper tissues such as connective and fascia to release long held tensions allowing for the Prana/ life force to flow more easily through previously blocked areas increasing overall energy and well-being. Yin Yoga helps us to play our edges, unwind, breath more consciously and turn inward. There is less instruction to listen to, much to discover within oneself and more peace to be found. Yin yoga is a stabilizing, feminine and contemplative practice and is a wonderful compliment to any other form of yoga or any other activity in our life. Benefits of Yin yoga are: •⁠ ⁠Calming and balancing the mind and body •⁠ ⁠Regulates energy, balances hormones, Improves sleep and deeper relaxation •⁠ ⁠Increases mobility in the body, especially the joints and hips •⁠ ⁠Lowers stress levels, reduces anxiety, tmp and migraines •⁠ ⁠Greater stamina, better ability to sit through meditation •⁠ ⁠Better lubrication, protection and flexibility of joints and connective tissue Release of fascia throughout the body The Yin retreat offers 12 CEU’s with Yoga Alliance. Yin Yoga Teacher Training (for teachers and practitioners) This 20 hour Yin Yoga teacher training includes 20 CEU’s with Yoga Alliance and is a valuable addition to your teaching repertoire. As a teacher you will learn: to help students ease agitation and promote relaxation explain organic and emotional/energetic benefits of postures suggest specific postures therapeutically assess comfort of your students develop an understanding of the healing process offer verbal cues and hands on adjustments to re-align and restore the root of imbalance to guide students through several sequences of yin yoga postures Learn more about Nora, you're wonderful, professional, and experienced yoga teacher HERE.
