Yin Yoga is a very simple practice. We settle into an asana for 3-7 minutes and slowly relax our muscles to allow the deeper drier tissues--the connective tissues that wrap our muscles and make up our joint capsules--to be safely and therapeutically stretched, stimulated and strengthened.
The alignment rules of the postures are also simple: we listen to our bodies and lead ourselves into the shape that follows the natural contours of our spine, pelvis and hips. However, bringing ourselves into this simplicity can be quite challenging. The practice of being still and quiet for minutes at a time can be trying enough, let alone while dropping into a deep and often burning stretch across wide sheets of connective tissue. And listening to our bodies to find the natural, organic alignment of the pose requires a discrimination, an understanding and familiarity with the moment to moment changing sensations in the body.
In this training, we will analyze, observe and practice all of these elements of Yin Yoga in depth. We will examine ourselves on a personal level with ancient meditation techniques that guide us into a steady awareness of the changing sensations in the postures; and we will examine each other with anatomical range of motion tests to help understand why every posture should be modified to fit the unique skeletal structures of the individual. The weekend culminates into the art of developing an effective and appropriate Energy Curve in a yoga class and the art of sequencing Yin Yoga postures for a dominantly Yin class or as a means to support a more fiery and/or fluid Vinyasa (Yang) class.
