Yin Yoga is a passive practice that allows you to sink into your joints, ligaments, tendons, fascia and mind. A great counter to any "yang" practice (power vinyasa, crossfit, boxing, power lifting, etc.), yin poses are often done on the floor and held for 3-5 minutes. Although a quiet practice by nature, yin poses will certainly bring out your body's voice urging you to really tune in and stay connected to yourself. Seated twists will open up energy meridians and hip openers will release any built up tension and emotion. Reiki is a system based on universal energy. This hands-on technique of healing allows energy to flow freely removing any blockages that may be causing emotional or physical pain.
So what can you expect from this Friday evening workshop? Your energy will be moved by the physical yin postures as well as Reiki healing. An introduction into Yin Yoga and Reiki will be given (so no need to fret if you're new to Yin, Reiki, or both!). Felicia (a Level II Reiki Practitioner), will guide you through a 75-minute Yin practice as she provides Reiki to each person (picture yourself with your legs up the wall and your head cradled by a heated ball of energy!). Expect to feel a release during the practice and leave feeling rejauvenated! Bringing a pen and journal is always welcomed! It's a great way to leave your week behind and ring in the weekend!
Note: if you enjoyed Yoga Nidra this class is the right fit for you!
