Yin Yoga: The Art of Intentional Surrender Saturday March 4, 3:30-6pm $40 Sunday March 5 3:30-6pm suite 206 $40 Cost for both workshops. $70 The heart of yin yoga is the practice of letting go, of intentional surrender. If you have ever heard this and wondered what it means, really, or why or how it works; if you’ve not yet experienced a yin class, or if you love yin and want to take your practice deeper – this weekend is for you. This two-part workshop is designed to offer participants both insight and experience. For insight: we will touch on yin yoga’s origins and take a look at the nadis (meridians or energy channels) and how they connect to yin yoga. We will explore the whys & hows & benefits & joys of a yin practice. We will discover and discuss how yin yoga differs from yang yoga styles (such as vinyasa or Ashtanga) as well from restorative yoga—and why this matters, bringing light to these points which are often cloudy. For experience: each day will include a full yin practice so participants can experience these insights and feel the practice in their bodies, breath and minds. Saturday’s class will likely revolve around heart and lungs; Sunday’s around hips, liver, and kidneys – though I reserve the right to adjust these themes depending on what is inspiring and relevant as our time together approaches. Since our aspiring yoga teachers will be in attendance, this workshop will also include guiding bits and pieces pertinent to sharing this practice, including exposure to some of the diverse opinions in the yoga world on how to structure a class, the choice to practice along while teaching, and whether or not and how to use props. Each person will leave having gained valuable insight and experience – as well as two fully-outlined yin practices, ready for you to use in a personal home practice or perhaps as a beginning in your sharing as a yin yoga teacher. I am looking forward to exploring and experiencing this YINsightful journey with you! If you have any questions, please email me (Amanda Culp) directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
