Yin and Yang Yoga Workshop with Sarah Owen
Sunday 23rd September 2012
10am - 1pm
A holistic yoga practice includes a skilful balance of yoga techniques that develop strength and determination (‘yang’ qualities that are developed through practices such as dynamic asana), as well as those practices that encourage contentment and acceptance (‘yin’ qualities that are developed through passive practices). This three-hour workshop will cover a full-rounded yoga practice, including both yin and yang (passive and active) elements of yoga practice.
Our yoga practice is really a reflection on how we live our lives - we can benefit from knowing when to be motivated to ‘take action’ or ‘make change’ in our lives, as well as knowing when to release control, to ‘go with the flow’, and see what ‘unfolds naturally’.
Yin Yoga is a restorative style of yoga that uses long-held, passive poses to nourish the connective tissues in the body, promoting greater physical flexibility, organ health and peace of mind.
Yang Yoga is a dynamic, flowing style of yoga that links the postures to the breath. With regular practice, the body becomes stronger and leaner, and the mind more focused.
