Generally, when we think of the asana practice, we tend to think of the strength and flexibility benefits provided by the various forms of “active” (i.e. Vinyasa) practices. These practices are considered yang. Just as daylight is balanced by night, a well-balanced asana practice should embrace both the yin and yang aspects of the asanas.
This workshop will provide each participant with a full understanding of Yin Yoga, a practice designed to provide nourishment and balance to the body's deep tissues (fascia), improved energy flow (Qi), and the ability to cultivate a calm and peaceful mind.
During this workshop, Michele and John will provide you with the tools and techniques that will enable you to create and deliver the classes that will help your students find a greater balance in their asana practice.
