In this workshop series we’ll use the practice and principles of yin yoga to facilitate and deepen our exploration of mindfulness meditation. Yin yoga features long, passive holds that unwind buried tension in the connective tissues. The receptivity and stillness that the practice cultivates helps us drop deeply into presence and embody an open hearted awareness. Creating the space within ourselves for softness, acceptance, and surrender allows us to let go of effort, moving from a state of doing into one of simply being. From this wider awareness, we can approach our meditation practice with less effort and more allowance, finding the space to rest in the truth of our wholeness and come home to ourselves.
All levels welcome.
