Yin Yoga with Laura
Yin yoga is the other side of yoga. Coming from Chinese Medicine tradition, Yin yoga works with the maridian line and connective tissues of the body. This must be done differently than working muscles. Yin involves simple postures, and the use of props to support the body in a way so that the muscles can copletely relax and the bones ligaments and joints can be accessed. The challenging part of Yin is learning to be still with yourself. Students will sit with poses for 3-5 minutes. This presents the opportunity to awaken awareness to the pressent moment. Sensations arise and fall, facia opens, long held tesnions, emotions and stress are released.Yin teaches us to be with ourselves unconditionally, in a nonjudemental way and allow time and space to heal.
