YIN YOGA PRACTICES TO CULTIVATE SOMATIC AWARENESS
These intelligent movement & stillness practices are weaved in meaningful yogic philosophy, designed to regulate your body and nervous system through holistic yin yoga, pranayama, meditation and mudra, integrated with self-reflection work.
Develop awareness of your lower body and the interdependence between the roots (feet, ankles, knees) and the torso; between our internal resources and our external resilience!Yin has its foundations in deep inner listening and this first practice will create the optimum environment for you to navigate within.
Aligning the Pelvis, Sacrum & Lower Back
Moving deeper in, we connect with the “home” of the kidneys and reproductive organs – the pelvis & lower back. Learn in this class how to create the balance between stability and mobility while assessing what you need in alignment with your individual structure and condition.
Spinal Fluidity & Homeostasis
Breath, movement and spinal flexibility are the ingredients to a healthy spine. The spine is the central axis in our bodies and the spinal fluid, the rhythmic water that nourishes our brains and bodies. This class to creates awareness of this internal rhythmic movement and effects on nervous system regulation.
The Web of Lymph & Fascia
We explore the symbiotic relation between lymph and fascia in movement and touch, by practicing circular movements to unlock the joints and dissolve any tension patterns in your lymphatic and fascia systems. With touch, you will learn release points that facilitate the flow of chi /prana and access deeper states of vitality and somatic awareness.
Kidneys: the dance of Fire & Water
We will finish our series with a kidney regenerative practice to boost your immune system and ignite clarity of mind. The aim is to cultivate an energised body and serene mind, so it serves as a frame of reference to our wellbeing. This is the core-integration of Yin & Yang.
