Maitrī Yin Yoga Class during Carnival holidays
starts Wednesday 14 february 2024 at 20:00
This 90-minute class is taught in English.
Yin Yoga enables you to remain centered in a turbulent world, to alleviate stress, to remove dis-ease, and to tune into your inner wisdom.
During the workshop, we will focus on postures and practices that enhance mindfulness while giving time and space for the parasympathetic nervous system to bring about a state of peace and healing.
We will use the practice to witness the body, heart, and mind in each pose.
Holding poses also provides an opportunity to explore sensation and the nature of the mind. In this way, we will learn to notice the self-inflicted distractions that keep us from being here now and develop greater states of presence while opening the physical body.
Whether you’re newer to the path of yoga, or you’re a long-time practitioner, this class offers an accessible and inspiring opportunity to develop or deepen your practice.
No previous yin yoga is necessary. Everybody is welcome.
Style: Yin Yoga
Yin yoga is a modern synthesis of Tao Yin and hatha yoga developed by Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers. In Yin yoga, floor postures are held for a long duration (3-5 minutes). On a physical level, it helps to increase the suppleness in the joints within our natural range of motion. While staying in the positions, we apply gentle pressure on the joints and relax the muscles around them. This way we affect the deep connective tissues and initiate the natural repair mechanism of the body. Energetically, Yin Yoga helps opening the body’s meridian system. It increases our vitality and harmonizes the energetic activity of the body. Go to the Yin yoga page.
