Yin & Restorative Yoga Workshop
August 4 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm| $50
With Muriel Pellizzi E-RYT, YACEP
In this workshop, Muriel brings you a highly therapeutic practice to honor your own unique physical structure. Without forcing the body into shapes, we adjust the pose to suit your own physical limitations.
As most yoga practices are active and heat building in nature (yang), one must balance active and passive tissues and energy to live in optimal health. Yin yoga helps with that balance. Yin is slow and mindful as it aims at the deeper connective tissues surrounding joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia. Yin postures increase mobility and flexibility, release deep-seated energy blocks and prepares the mind for relaxation. This passive yet challenging practice consists mainly of floor postures which are held for 3-5 minutes, encouraging the student to dive inward on a physical and mental level.
Muriel will coax you deeper into relaxation as you release into long held, fully supported Restorative postures. Gentle hands-on therapeutic touch will be given, allowing you to tune in to your own healing resources more easily. By cultivating this deep relaxation you will enhance immune function and clear energetic blocks, while leaving you feeling mentally and physically nourished.
When ones energy is not balanced, we are more likely to feel sluggish, stressed and sick. When our energy is flowing well and balanced, we feel vitality, peace and wellbeing.
Looking for a more therapeutic approach to yoga? This class is for you and is open to all levels of student.
