Yin/YANG Yoga Retreat

FINDING BALANCE

 

In this workshop, we will take the time to meet ourselves and find balance in the present moment. The day will be a mix of active Yang Yoga and slow passive Yin Yoga. The two practices complement and complete each other. Enabling us to both strengthen and stretch our muscles and fascia (meridians). In the morning, we will focus on the torso and arms. In the afternoon, will we target the hips and legs. Throughout the day retreat, we will approach ourselves with openness and creativity.

What is Yang Yoga:

Yang yoga is a cardio vascular strong form of yoga.  Postures are done repetitively to build up strength in the muscle tissues. It inviorgates the body and stabilizes the joints through the muscular strengthening. Yang yoga burns up lethargy and stagnation giving us more oomph to meet the challenges in our daily lives. We all need both an active strong (yang) practice and a still contemplative (yin) practice to find and maintain balance in the body, mind, and heart.  Meeting and attending to our Yin and Yang sides of ourselves is the key to health and well being.

 

 

What is Yin Yoga:

Yin yoga is a still, slow form of yoga. Postures are done sitting or lying and are held for 2 to 5 minutes long. Yin targets the fascia (connective tissue) and meridians, creating more ease throughout the body, especially in your joints. It is extremely helpful for relieving back pain and loss of flexibility. Yin yoga helps us to achieve and maintain our own personal range of motion. By activating the meridians and the parasympathetic nervous system, it calms our body and minds. Through yin's natural meditative qualities, it helps still the mind allowing for more clarity of thought and insight.

Yin Yoga DAy Retreat

Slowing Down, Tuning In, & Opening Up   

 

First we will pause, soften, and connect with how we are at this present moment. Then we will take a journey through our entire body focusing on the 12 primary meridians.  Each sequence will target a different meridian group. We will stretch, contract, and compress our bodies in oder to be more fully engaged with them. This practice gives us insight into how to meet our bodies daily for the benefits of better health. During the day retreat, we will meet ourselves as we are with openness and creativity. We will learn skills to carry with us throughout our daily life for more authentic, compassionate living.

What is Yin Yoga:

Yin yoga is a still, slow form of yoga. Postures are done sitting or lying and are held for 2 to 5 minutes long.  It is the vital balance needed to an active, dynamic, and muscular yoga practice or life style. Yin targets the fascia (connective tissue) and meridians, creating more ease throughout the body, especially in your joints. It is extremely helpful for relieving back pain and loss of flexibility. Yin yoga helps us to achieve and maintain our own personal range of motion. By activating the meridians and the parasympathetic nervous system, it calms our body and minds.  It relieves stress and tension in the physical body. It opens us up to the depth of our emotional body, providing us with time and space to hold and digest our emotions. Through yin's natural meditative qualities, it helps still the mind allowing for more clarity of thought and insight.

Yoga DAy Retreat

Gathering and Storing CHI

 

Hatha Yoga translates to the yoga of activity (the physical postures) and to the yoga of balance: HA (sun) THA (moon). Over the course of the day, through Yin and Yang yoga, we will meet and engaged with ourselves from the top of our heads to the tips of our toes. We will feel into, strengthen, and stretch our entire bodies. All of this will be done in a spirit of curiosity and compassion. Yoga means to unite. Through our continued practice, we develop insights and tools that help us feel connected to ourselves and each other for more authentic, balanced, compassionate living.
