In this practice, we will explore some of the benefits of Yin for your nervous systems. You will get to experience these benefits and identify them as you practice so hopefully you can take some valuable tools into your life.
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.
