Yin Yoga is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang, opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things; yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect. Other yin-yang polarities include cold-hot, down-up, calm-excited.
In the body, the relatively stiff connective tissues(tendons, ligaments, fascia) are yin, while the more mobile and pliable muscles and blood are yang.
A Yin Yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body—the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. The poses are held for up to five minutes, sometimes longer.
This class will alternate between three different types of classes. The 1st week of the month will be Shamanic Breathing. The 2nd week of the month will be Drum and Rattle Healing Circle. The 3rd week will be an Energy Healing / Reiki Share. This class is donation based.
Introduction to Qigong: China's Ancient Art of Self-Healing
Qigong is a Chinese meditative practice which uses a holistic system of coordinated body posture, slow graceful movements and controlled breathing techniques that strengthen your mind-body-spirit connection, reduce stress, promote healing, health and inner peace.
Practicing Qigong can increase vitality, strengthen your resistance to illness, enhance the immune system, energize the lymphatic system, strengthen digestion, relieve stress and pain, prevent injury, strengthen balance to prevent falls, improve cardiovascular and respiratory function, and leave you feeling energized, balanced and calm.
The practices are simple to learn, and easily modified for people of varying fitness levels. Students of Qigong have reported feeling profound benefits after only a few weeks of practice.
