This practice is not a very traditional Yin. If you love to be exposed to something different in your practice you will love this. If you enjoy learning things about yourself in movement and stillness, you will love this. We will make use of little bits and pieces of an Awareness Through Movement lesson called Hip to Shoulder as well as poses that illuminate this relationship particularly well. This is a practice that I use often with my students who come to me with contralateral hip/shoulder pain. I find that it makes some mental/spiritual connections that can be very profound and healing.
If you suffer from neck pain (everyone raises hand…) this class is for you. Learn more about pain, why stretching isn’t the answer and what actually may help. This class blends Yin and somatic techniques to soothe your nervous system and re-introduce smooth, pain free movement.
This is a special practice for students with ongoing back pain. We will explore the back through somatic movement, Yin poses and interoceptive practices. Learn how to use your “eyes” and breath to “see” your whole back.
This practice is a godsend if you suffer from neck pain and/or stiffness. Equal parts Feldenkrais Method® and Yin Yoga. We will focus our attention on the pelvis and spine rather than the neck to keep things soft and comfortable.
In practice we will explore the state of liminality; A transitional time that is characterized by a lack of status or role. This is a particularly challenging state of being as most of us are learning! Our lives, never terribly certain, are now marked with a new level of transition and uncertainty in this time of Corona Virus. We will use this idea to go really deep into our movement practice today. Very much emphasizing the transitional movements that we usually throw away and instead throw away the beginnings and the endings.
Novelty is a great way to inform the body and build up your body map! Our class will meander into some very fun and challenging postures. You will get to see how informed hips are functional hips!
