Just as no one else has your dental pattern, your bone structure, your hips or your spine, we are all unique in what we can and cannot do. Why then, do you think you can do a yoga pose that someone else can, or if someone else fails, you will too. This workshop will allow you to bring a deep awareness and understanding of your uniqueness and natural limitations.
What stops you? “There is no pose in yoga that everybody can do, and no one can do every pose” Bernie Clark.
The goal of our journey in this workshop is to realize the wisdom to know the difference of what stops you – tension or compression. It may not be physical, it could be pyschological or emotional. Come join us, linger in the poses, as you experience profound changes and pleasant energetic release to allow for greater range of movement through your practice.
In our active, Yang-like lifestyles, one of the most difficult things to do is to stop and sit still. However, if we ride the Yang train for too long, physical and mental exhaustion ensues. This can manifest itself in either breakdown and/or injury, ironically forcing us to embrace more Yin-like activities.
The practice of Yin Yoga trains us in the habit of slowing down, paying attention and listening. Listening to our body, to our mind, to the soothing sound of the breath. Yin goes hand in hand with the practice of mindfulness and helps to fine-tune the various skills that bring us back to the here and now.
During our Yin Yoga practice, when the drama reaches a peak, when we really want to come out, by paying attention to what is happening, we notice our cravings and our aversions. We start to notice how we want something else other than what is happening right now.
“After a deep, long-held hip opener, it may feel like we will never be able to walk again-but be assured that the fragility will pass.” Bernie Clark
Mindfulness skills we develop in the safe environment of our Yin practice can easily transfer off the mat. When we are mentally stuck in our everyday drama (worry, rumination, frustration), we can bring the same kind of attention to the sensations in our body, observe thoughts and reactions and deliberately stay with them until they go away.
Completing this workshop with a guided relaxation, you will leave the session with an enriching experience, incredibly nurtured sensation and float away in a blissful state.
