Yin the Other Yoga
Saturday October 24th 2-4pm
What is Yin yoga and what are the benefits?
In this workshop with Bob Tenbarge you will study and practice the theories of Yin yoga and how it interconnects with the Traditional Chinese Medicine system (TCM)and the 5 Elements. It is open to teachers or students with an interest to practice or teach Yin yoga. In Yin yoga we target the fascia, connective tissues, tendons, and ligaments to improve range of motion and increased flexibility. Breathing is a huge part of Yin yoga and can help us bring our Parasympathetic nervous system back into dominance. This will help reduce stress and anxiety, and lower our cortisol levels helping us to in rest and digestion.
When we tie in Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) with Yin yoga you will learn about the Meridians or pathways in your body that complete an energetic pathway to your organs and tissues. When these pathways are open Qi flows freely to improve our immunity as well as physical and mental health. TCM can teach you how to interpret what your body is telling you. TCM emphasizes the importance of prevention over cure. The 5 Elements used in the TCM system help us understand the cycles of life, our health and connect us to nature. We can use the information from the Elements to observe our emotional state and to improve organ health.
Bob has had the good fortune to train with Michelle Finch and Sarah Powers who have studied with the original Yin teachers, Paul and Suzi Grilley and Bernie Clark and hold certifications in Yin Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine. He is a YACEP with Yoga Alliance and can offer Continuing Education Credit for yoga Alliance registered teachers. If you have never tried a Yin yoga practice, I encourage you to attend this workshop. You will be surprised to see how a regular Yin yoga practice will improve your life.
