Yin Yang Yoga Workshop
Saturday, March 30th at 2pm, Stadionweg
A combination of Yin yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and Pranayama with a continuous focus on the inside.
Our busy lives and racing minds can send us spiralling in many directions. In fact, we have strayed so far from the simplicity of life that it has become easy to lose sight of our essence, our true nature. With Yin yoga we take the time to rediscover what it means to turn down the volume of our activities and become a little quieter. With Yang yoga we keep the focus on the inside while the body is moving and putting effort to stay in the poses. As always your yoga happens on the inside.
From Yin to Yang..
The Yin part will be all about the liver & gallbladder meridians, which support hte body's natural digestive and detoxification functions. As nature enters a new cycle of growth & renewal in Spring, so does the energy within us. The liver is yin energy and the gallbladder is yang energy. Deepening the practice and activating these meridians by staying longer in the yin poses. There wil be options to turn the Yin poses into Restorative poses for those who wants to do & feel less.
We will start the Yang part with a breathing exercize to activate the body. Followed by a good warming up and some sun salutations to start stretching the body. Breaking a sweat and releasing what doesn't serve you in a few vinyasa flows. Activating, stretching and twisting while keeping the breath slow and deep. Resting in savasana and ending the practice with a meditation.
So let's shift the focus from the outside world to that universe that opens up inside us when we close our eyes. Making a journey within, uncovering more of the real you and being open to whatever comes up on this Saturday afternoon and whatever allow yourself to let go of whatever wants to be released.The goal is to have you leave the studio lighter than you enter.
Sim started her first Vinyasa teacher training simply because she wanted to know more about yoga. After experiencing several different styles and workshops she really wanted to broaden her horizons. During this training she had to teach as well: something she didn't really want to do, but ended up liking it a lot! After that she went on to study Hatha yoga in India. Upon her return to Amsterdam so continued her study with yoga. She likes to teach now because she found it has been a very good way to get to know her own body, mind and spirit better. She teaches from the perspective that every body is different. One of her favorite quotes, from Bernie Clark, is "We don't use the body to get into the pose, we use the pose to get into the body”.
The workshop will last about 2.5 hours and there will be tea and snacks with Sim at the end to answer any questions that you may have or just to get to know each other a bit better. It will cost €35 and space is limited so please sign in below.
