Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Nora Benian
Sat, Sun Date: Jul 07 2018 - Jul 08 2018 From: No times specified
Bridge the gap between an active life and a meditative life.
While practicing stillness in postures/asanas with longer holds, one's mind begins to quiet down and allow greater awareness and understanding of oneself to emerge.
Yin yoga can be described as a stabilizing, destressing, feminine and contemplative practice. Yin yoga is based on the Taoist concepts of balancing the Yin and the Yang, the
opposite and complementary principles in nature. With our busy lifestyles, our bodies tighten up from mental tension and cause all sorts of ailments and lack of mobility
leading to discomfort and pain.
Yin yoga postures give an opportunity for deeper tissues such as connective and fascia to release long-held tensions allowing for the Prana/life force to flow more easily through previously blocked areas increasing overall energy
and well-being. Yin Yoga helps us to play our edges, unwind, breath more consciously and turn inward. There is less instruction to listen to, much to discover within oneself and more peace to be found.

Yin yoga is a wonderful compliment to any other form of yoga or any other activity in our life.
