An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until April 28, 2022
This class will be taught by Siwen Xi on Thursdays at 12pm PST.
The practice of Yin Yoga embraces both ancient wisdom from China and classic Hatha yoga asanas from India. While holding each pose for a prescribed amount of time, there is an opportunity for meditation, for tuning the breath, mind, and the body. Yoga provides everyone a safe pathway to develop one’s flexibility and mobility, to become more mindful, to heal and to love oneself. Due to the fact that our bodies structure differently, and everyone has different purposes and needs for yoga practice, variations and modifications will be provided to support and help everyone’s Yin Yoga practice. While practicing Yin Yoga, apart from a quiet and comfortable place to practice, you may also need the props including 1 to 2 blocks (or thick books), a strap (or scarf and towel), a bolster (or a pillow). Although there is no resource proving if props were used by Yin Yoga’s founder Paulie Zink due to his martial arts background, I would suggest listening to your body and use the props when you need them to help promote a safer and healthier practice.
