Join Danielle Polen on Saturday, March 15 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm at TS Dupont for Yin Yoga University 101 – for a deeper exploration of Yin Yoga.
Today most forms of yoga are “yang” in nature—they emphasize muscular movement and contraction. By contrast, Yin Yoga targets the deep, dense connective tissues of the body—tissues that are more challenging to energize and open. By targeting the connective tissue of the body, yin postures help the body remain supple at its core while encouraging stagnant ch’i (prana) to flow through the body’s “energetic highways,” or meridians, thus enhancing the health of the joints and organs. In addition, Yin Yoga assists us in cultivating a sensitivity to the energy body, while simultaneously working to rebalance the same.
Useful texts: Sarah Powers, Insight Yoga; Bernie Clark, Yinsights.
Continuing education units (CE) of Techniques Training & Practice and Anatomy & Physiology are available for yoga teachers upon successful completion and per request. This is workshop is part of our Advanced Teacher Training, but all yogis are welcome.
