About the event
This unique workshop will offer a combination of Yin Yoga and Thai Yoga therapy. Yin style of yoga is a practice that focuses on the 12 meridian lines of the body and accessing them through postures. Each gentle posture will be held for 5-10 minutes using several props to allow ample time to fully relax into each pose. There is intention for why we do each posture besides the physical outcome; each allows us to access these energy meridians releasing physical tension but also emotional tension or trauma to allow us to reach better awareness with ourselves. Each pose is meant to activate 1 of the 5 elements (Earth, Water, Air, Space, Fire) and different awareness questions will be prompted to ask yourself and journal about.
While in each posture you will also receive hands-on body adjustments and Thai Yoga therapy (similar to massage) by the instructor, Arielle. Layer Yin with Thai Therapy and you'll be ready to deep dive into this body awarness on all levels!
Between postures we will move through a slow flow to get ready for our next posture and allow for pause if you would like to journal or jot down anything that came up during that posture. At the end we will do an extended shavasana to give ample time for the body to become still, stillness that will travel with us as we move through the rest of our day and week.
Participants are encouraged to bring a journal, layers of clothing & an oppeness to connect deeper to yourself. Participants should also be open to receiving adjustments & hands on body work throughout the workshop. Modifications will be offered to any level.
