The Art of Meditation
The Quiet Practice: A Yin Yoga Intensive
Yin Yoga - frequently called the quiet practice is a relatively new type of yoga to hit the US yoga scene. Challenging in very different ways, this practice deeply stretches the connective tissues of the body and stimulates energy flow through the meridians of the body. A series of long held seated poses (typically 3-5 minutes) it is lovingly interwoven with gentle stretches, soothing music, inspirational poetry, spiritual readings and best of all – hands on healing and gentle massage. Often compared to Acupuncture, Yin Yoga comes from the eastern part of the world, and works with the same principals of healing, those of stimulating "chi" or blood flow thru deep channels or "nadis' in the body. For yoga students, teachers and health care professionals. YA credits eligible.

It is highly appropriate for those recovering from or living with chronic illness or injury, physical or emotional trauma of any kind, or post surgery patients seeking ways to gently ease back into movement.

"Once we're willing to confront our emotional suffering, we begin making choices based on attraction instead of aversion, love instead of fear. Where we used to think about what was 'safe,' we now become interested in doing what seems right or fun or meaningful or ripe with possibilities." Martha Beck
