All sessions will include some lecture on the alchemy of Yin and Yang yoga. We will explore specific yoga postures for each of the five transforming alchemical elements of earth, metal, water, wood, and fire. These elements animate distinct qualities in the body such as lightness, fluidity, strength, springiness and calm. By integrating the power and healing aspects of these properties we stabilize emotions, harmonize the internal organs, and resonate with the true nature of our being.

 

The Art of Yin and Yang Yoga
Saturday September 13, 12:45-2:45 pm 

Developed from the healing practices and spiritual philosophies of ancient China, this art is based on the Taoist principles of living in oneness with nature. We will experience how to cultivate vital life force and direct it through the body, balance our yin and yang energies, liberate ourselves from limiting perceptions, feel with the intuitive heart and express the artist within.
Appropriate for all levels. Includes asanas & energy awareness exercises.


Taoist Flow Yoga
Saturday September 13, 3:15-5:15 pm

Including both Yin and Yang yoga, Taoist movement is much more than a sequence of postures. It incorporates a continuous synergistic economy of motion designed to quicken our primal spirit, and to promote relaxed confidence, fluidity, and grace in the body.
Appropriate for all levels. Includes  asanas in movement with integrated breathing exercises.

 

Yin Yoga
Sunday September 14, 12:45-2:45 pm

Deepen your practice and enhance self-awareness by returning to the source of being and the mystery that informs all of life. We will hold postures of stillness to clear energetic blockages, improve circulation, and unlock the joints while focusing on visualizations for grounding, relaxation, and growing the body supple.
Appropriate for all levels. Includes  asanas and meditations.

 

Yin Yoga Alchemy
Sunday September 14, 3:15-5:15 pm

We explore specific yoga postures to endow the body with the energetic qualities of the five transforming alchemical elements of earth, metal, water, wood, and fire. Each element contains and animates distinct qualities in the body such as lightness, fluidity, strength, springiness, and calm. By integrating the power and healing aspects of these properties we stabilize emotions, harmonize the internal organs, and resonate with the true nature of our being.
Appropriate for all levels. Mostly asanas, energy awareness exercises.
