Monthly Yin Yoga & Mindfulness Workshop
January 21st, 5-7pm with Rob Phillips
In winter, the days get shorter and temperatures drop. It’s a perfect time to slow down your practice and re-energize your body. This Yin Yoga workshop will help you melt away layers of stress and leave you ready for the winter days ahead.
In Yin Yoga we use passive holds of 3-5 minutes to access the deepest tissues of the body. There is no rushing physically or mentally, and the body is completely relaxed. You'll be encouraged to pay attention to each moment and work gradually through each pose. Since the technical practice is quite simple, this opens up an opportunity to learn the principles of mindfulness.
This two-hour workshop will focus on opening up the hips and lower body. As you work though the poses you will settle deeply, you will build a strong awareness of the body and breath. Class will end with a short mindfulness meditation to integrate all that was explored during the asana sequence.
$30 for workshop
