Throughout the Yin practice, connecting into breath work and opening to the edge physically. The stilling of the mind to observe, with a willingness to dig into emotions that may present, then allowing movement in mind and body through breath work, an acceptance and overall experience to embrace change and find balance in life.
The Yin practice will allow you to move through a meditative practice in physical long holds of deep postures. Connecting into the breath and using mind and body observation of what is felt and happening as you move through the postures. It encourages you to find a place of focused awareness of stillness while lubricating and working deep into the joints, ligaments, and fascia, promoting strength, healing and flexibility throughout the entire body.
