Fundamentals Of Yin Yoga
A workshop with Marla Cantor of Yoga Sparks Cville
Love Yin Yoga, Just Curious, Want to Explore Deeper?
This Yin Yoga workshop is an in-depth study of all things Yin. Suitable for anyone wanting to explore the practice and theory of Yin Yoga, including new and long-time practitioners and teachers.
Yin Yoga focuses on working deeper tissues – ligaments, joints, deep fascial tissues, and bones. All poses are done seated or lying down. Yin is unique because we relax the muscles and use gravity to come to our edge. Improvements in flexibility, awareness, and stress level are common.
Yin Yoga is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after styles of yoga. Perhaps it is because we are craving the qualities that a Yin practice provides: stillness, simplicity, self-examination, and just being in the present moment. These are the elements that make up the heart of Yin Yoga.
In this workshop we will cover:
• The History of Yin
• What is Yin and Yang?
• Theory of Exercise
• What are Yin and Yang tissues of the body?
• Why don’t we move?
• Physical Aspects of Yin
• Energetic Aspects of Yin
• Emotional and Mental Aspects of Yin
• Why do Yin?
This workshop will start with a 90 minute practice followed by lecture, videos, and discussion.
