Beautifully Blissed Out
Limited Capacity filling up

A deep Yin Practice, artistically woven and challenging followed by a delicious Yoga Nidra. All Levels Welcome. Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. While initially this style of yoga can seem quite boring, passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes! Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realize that you have been doing only half of the asana practice. Yoga Nidra is an ancient but little-known yogic practice that's becoming increasingly popular as both a form of meditation and a mind-body therapy. It is a systematic form of guided relaxation, yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage. ... The yogic goal of both paths, deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and meditation are the same, a state called samadhi.

The Space Between: An Exploration of Yin Yoga
Limited Capacity seats available

Yin Yoga is one of the most energetically transformational asana yoga
practices. Through deep discussion and a long exploratory practice, we
investigate the Traditional Chinese Meridians and their anatomical
counterparts, the fascial meridians. With hands on learning and embodied
practice, we will learn how we can use both the meridians and the fascial
trains to create a healthy functional body, a clear and calm mind, and
balanced energy.

I used to have panic attacks. The kind the struck with such ferocity and frequency that I was convinced I was dying. My arms and face would go numb, the room would spin with vertigo and every ounce of my being was thrown into primal survival mode. I’m not sure why I went to my first... Read More →
