I'm beyond excited to share that I am now offering monthly Rest & Restore workshops.
Carving out space for yourself to attend these workshops will give you space to calm your mind and body with a combination of Yin yoga, intention setting and journaling exercises.
What is Yin Yoga?
Yin yoga incorporates still, gentile postures and focuses on the connective tissue in the body instead of muscles.
Yin and Yang is a concept that comes from ancient Taoist philosophy that focuses on the harmony between opposing forces.
Yin energy is calm, still, inward, quiet.
Yang energy is energetic, warm, loud.
In our lives, we want our yin and yang energy to be in balance (or harmony). Many of us spend a lot more time in Yang energy. For example, hectic schedules, rushing from activity to activity (or meeting to meeting), always surrounded by "noise" from our environment, social media etc.
Yin yoga helps us carve out space to spend a little more time finds balance between our energies.
Benefits of Yin Yoga
There are many physical and emotional benefits of practising Yin Yoga.
For example, Yin yoga can help to reduce stress and anxiety by quieting our "fight or flight" response in the body.
It allows us to connect our physical body to our mental & emotional wellbeing. Yin yoga can also help us:
improve joint health
improve range of motion in our joints
Hope to see you in an upcoming class!
