Seasonal Yin: Welcoming the Spring (2 hrs)
starts Friday 28 february 2020 at 15:00
This program is taught in English.
Our 2-hour practice will target the Liver and Gallbladder energies that are related to the Wood element in our bodies.
Wood is considered as primary element of Spring in the Chinese Medicine. It represents the first phase of the five element cycle, connected to growth, rebirth and expansion. We will emerge from the depths of winter with the intention of detoxifying the body, restoring balance and realizing our creative potential.
No previous yin yoga or meditation practice 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.
Teacher: Danijela Radic
Danijela's first contact with yoga was back in the late '90s in Belgrade. In 2009, she joined Denise's Ashtanga courses and followed them for eight years before taking La Source's 300-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training, completed in April 2016. She continued in trainings, mainly in Ashtanga, Vinyasa Krama and Yin. She went to study with Srivatsa Ramaswami in Europe and India, obtaining two Advanced Teacher Training certificates (200 hrs) in Vinyasa Krama. It has helped her tap into deeper levels in her personal practice. While still in love with Ashtanga and its captivating flow of breath with movement – Vinyasa Krama unlocked the various stages of each asana and improved her stillness. Practicing yoga makes her happy and light. It clears her mind and frees the space for new ideas. She is grateful for the opportunity to share some of that lightness with you. Go to Danijela's page.
