YIN-YANG YOGA at The Studio at The Haven

TUESDAY   3:45 - 4:45 PM

Yin Yoga is a gentle yoga style where most of the postures are performed on the ground with gentle movements, staying in the posture for several minutes to work deeply at the level of the joints, tendons and the fascia that covers all of them. our organs and muscles.

In Yin Yoga, no physical warm-up is needed prior to the postures, since the aim is to work on the real range of flexibility of the body. However to bring some balance to this passivity,  classes will start with some "Yang" in the form of Vinyasa movements, light joint movements or Tai Chi.  

Yin-Yang Yoga is a fusion between Taoist yoga, martial arts and concepts of traditional Chinese medicine. We use circular breathing, that is, continuous without retention, obtaining the benefits of breathing and achieving meditation and being present in the here and now.

Yin-Yang Yoga seeks to harmonize the 5 elements of traditional Chinese medicine: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water, through their corresponding YIN meridians: Liver, heart, spleen/pancreas, lung, kidneys; and of the YANG meridians corresponding to the viscera: gallbladder, small intestine, stomach, large intestine and bladder, with yoga postures.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, to maintain health, we must be in harmony and balance with ourselves and with nature.

Wear clothes that allow them to move easily, that are not tight and do not use jewelry or metallic accessories.

ACCESSORIES FOR PRACTICE
The important thing in yin yoga is to be comfortable.  Mats, blocks and straps are available at The Studio for your use, but you may prefer to bring your own.   You are also encouraged to bring a bolster (an elongated rigid cushion, a blanket or large towel).

* don't worry if you don't have all the supplies for the first class, bring from home what you see that can work for you and little by little you will put together your ideal yin yoga kit for you.

In class we will:
• Focus on the breath
•  Pay attention to the reaction of the body and mind
•  Maintain meditative state
•  Relax, smile and flow with the practice.

Additionally, the three commitments you are asked to keep are as follows.

1) Balance in your action.  Take care not to hurt yourself but always make an effort not to stay at a level of "comfort"  but rather to "seek comfort in discomfort".

2) Commitment to permanence in the stillness of the posture once you reach it

3) Commitment to maintaining the posture for a long time
