About the workshop

The purpose of yin yoga is to harmonize the energy flow in the body. We can do so by holding poses longer, keeping muscles relaxed and allow the sensations to go into the tendons, ligaments, connective tissues of the body.

During this workshop you will learn more about the fundamentals of the yin yoga practice combined with Chinese Medicine.
As our bodies are so different from the inside and outside, you will be guided through different variations, to find a shape that meets your body. Our connective tissues can also be manipulated by using myofascial release techniques. This will be complemented into the yin practice.

Besides the physical body, we will also focus on the energetic aspect of the practice and combine the wisdom of Chinese Medicine into your yin practice by touching on the 5 element theory.

We will end our time together with a meridian nidra. A practice that is designed by Jo Phee and will help to harmonize to energy flow in the body as you are laying down, following the instructions with the mind while the body is fully still.

Yin & Chinese Medicine info

In yin yoga, postures are hold for longer periods of time to stimulate the energy flow in the body. It’s a practice focused on cultivating stillness and helps us to turn more inward while stimulating the connective tissues; fascia and joints, in the body. Especially in our daily world, a lot of our activities are yang in nature and have a ‘go for it’ attitude. Engaging in yin activities helps our body and mind to find the necessary balance between doing and observing – being. We need both aspects in our lives, yin and yang in order to feel healthy.

According to Chinese Medicine, there are energy channels running through the body, meridians. In order to feel healthy and happy, the energy needs to flow smoothly. A yin yoga practice can help to stimulate this energy flow so that the physical body may feel at ease, inviting the mind and emotional body to follow.
