Two Weekends, May 19-20 and June 16-17

with Jacquie Ruderman

“a teacher is one who shares the radiance of her own discovery. when we share what we’re most lit up about, the result is not so much teaching as a transmission of energy and inspiration.” - jonathan foust
Yin yoga affects our physical, energetic, and emotional bodies and is a practice that emphasizes relaxation of our muscles in various asana postures.
Mostly done on the floor, the practice targets on a physical level the connective tissue of the joints. Poses are held for 3-5 minutes with the goal being to safely and therapeutically stretch, stimulate and strengthen these deeper tissues. On an energetic level the practice allows chi/prana to move more fluidly through our meridians. A Yin practice develops mindful awareness of the breath, the body, our emotions and thoughts.
