In this special Yin Yoga workshop, Josh will share an in-depth introduction to the core principles of Yin Yoga.
In Yin Yoga, floor postures are held passively for several minutes in order to access a safe and positive ‘stress’ on the deeper layers of connective tissue in the body.
Physically, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints, as well as decreases inflammation and improves hydration of the connective tissue. Energetically, Yin Yoga stimulates the body’s channel system of subtle energy, enhancing energetic flow and supporting emotional equilibrium. Yin Yoga also prepares both the body and mind for meditation.
In this two-hour workshop, Josh will share an in-depth introduction to the core principles of Yin Yoga. With a working knowledge of these core principles, each participant will be able to develop their own practice of Yin Yoga and maximize the benefits that this quiet practice offers.
