Yin Yoga Workshop: Finding the Missing Peace
December 3, 2017; 2pm- 4pm
The spiritual journey promises a movement from noise to silence, from agitation to calm, from complexity to simplicity. But, ultimately, it is our inner orientation to that journey, not the practices themselves, that determines whether or not we will reach our destination.
Within the practices of Yin Yoga and Buddhist Insight Meditation, Josh will offer clear guidance for directing one’s attention and energy towards the serenity and peace in the here and now regardless of the chaos in the world around or within you.
What is Yin Yoga?
Yin Yoga is a complementary yoga practice to more dynamic and active yoga styles. 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, primarily between the navel and the knees. Energetically, Yin Yoga opens the body’s meridian system, which enhances the body’s energetic flow and supports emotional equilibrium.
Yin Yoga emphasizes stillness and silence. The practice prepares both the body and mind for deeper experiences in meditation.
