ABOUT YIN YOGA
Do you have a job where you sit a lot and suffer from back problems or are you looking for a practice that relaxes you physically and mentally?
In Yin Yoga we primarily work and stimulate the connective tissue, also known as fascia, as well as our ligaments and joints. Long and passive stretches release adhesions and blockages in the fascia tissue, which are often responsible for complaints and chronic pain, especially in the lower back.
Yin Yoga also works specifically on the joints, such as the spine and hips. We pay little attention to our joints in everyday life, most of the time they are not used, we sit way too much. The practice of yin yoga makes the joints smoother and more flexible. In Yin Yoga we can have a positive and targeted effect on the fascia and reduce or completely dissolve pain.
We also stimulate the flow of energy in our meridians, allowing blockages in the energy system to be released and our life energy to flow freely again, ensuring physical, mental and spiritual balance and good health. And by the way, after a short yin yoga practice you are completely relaxed and your mind and body recharge their batteries and recover.
ABOUT THE YIN YOGA INTRODUCTION WEEKEND
The intro weekend is suitable for everyone who wants to get to know and experience Yin Yoga.
It is a practice-oriented weekend during which you will become familiar with all the important yin yoga asanas, their execution and the use of aids. You get a first insight into the exciting world of fascia, develop a new understanding of the body with the help of movement analysis in the group and after the anatomy of Yin Yoga founder Paul Grilley.
You don't have to do anything...reduce stress and recharge your batteries, sounds tempting, doesn't it?
Yin Yoga is all about relaxing into the asanas, practicing passively, without muscle tension, and letting the breath flow freely in order to achieve inner peace and deep relaxation.
Letting go is the top priority, both physically and mentally. By holding the positions for a long time we learn to endure situations and then to let go. When staying in the positions of 3-5 minutes there is much time and space to feel inside oneself, to rediscover one's own body and its limits, to arrive at oneself, to observe and accept thoughts. Yin Yoga has a meditative character and offers a wonderful balance to our hectic and challenging everyday life.
With the Yin Yoga Intro Weekend I want to introduce the practice of Yin Yoga with its health benefits to as many people as possible. This in-depth weekend is open to all those who do not want to attend a longer Yin Yoga training of 30 or 50 hours, but want to get to know Yin Yoga more deeply for their own practice and personal well-being. The Intro Weekend is also the first weekend of the 30 hour Yin Yoga training. So if you are interested in deepening your knowledge at a later date, you may also attend the second weekend of the 30h Yin Yoga Training after the Intro Weekend.
