Find Vitality With Yin

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a quiet contemplative practice that is suitable for all levels of practitioners. This beautiful restorative practice relaxes, restores and rejuvenates. It is a perfect complement to a more dynamic muscular (yang) style of practice. With this practice the practitioner is able to access the deeper tissues such as the connective tissue and fascia. Many of the postures focus on areas that include a joint - for example hips, sacrum and spine. As one ages, flexibility in the joints may decrease, Yin yoga is a wonderful way to sustain flexibility.

​This nurturing practice of yoga requires students stay present to their interior world of feelings, sensations, emotions and preference which they may habitually avoid in a fast paced yoga practice. Yin yoga is often used in programs that heal addictions, eating disorders, anxiety and deep pain or trauma. Many of us struggle with being alone, sitting with feelings and sensations and find it challenging to access acceptance and the rawness of life. Creating a space for all of these sensations to exist provides a greater mental stability and stillness that is directly transferrable off the mat in to everyday life.

Some of the benefits are
  • Calms and balances the mind and body
  • Regulates energy in the body
  • Increases mobility in the body, especially the joints and hips
  • Lowers stress levels
  • Increases stamina
  • Better lubrication and protection of joints
  • More flexibility in joints & connective tissue
  • Release of fascia throughout the body
  • Help with headaches and migraines
  • Deep Relaxation
  • Ability to cope with anxiety and stress
  • Better ability to sit for meditation
  • Improves Yang practice

Yin yoga teaches us how to listen deeply. In learning to listen with surrender we hear more. As the practice invites long periods of time in varying levels of discomfort, we learn to remain present to own company.

By developing this exquisite skill of stillness and presence within, we gain skills and dexterity that manifest in our world from the inside out. We gain recognition of the habituated patterns of the psychological mind and body and their conditioned responses. We taste freedom. With Yin Yoga practice we not only receive a new outlook on life; we travel inwards to peace and liberation.

May all beings find vitality with Yin

HIMALAYAN YIN YOGA

Himalayan Yin Yoga is a combination of Yin Yoga and the Himalayan tradition of yoga. It is presented as the path to self-realization used by the Himalayan and Taoist masters in a simple, understandable manner whilst not compromising the quality and depth of the ancient wisdom practices. The ultimate goal in direct experience of the highest inner realization while still engaging in the world.

 

The Himalayan Tradition

According to his tradition, yoga encompasses all the philosophies and practices that have ever been followed by the great sages, not only of the Himalayas, but also of Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Zen, and Sufism as well. The Himalayan tradition incorporates traditional yoga: Yoga sutras, Vedanta and Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra. In this tradition Yoga refers to the systematic process of meditation as outlined in the Yoga Sutras; Vedanta is primarily concerned with contemplation and direct experience as described in the Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita and in the Himalayan tradition, Tantra refers to Samaya Tantra, which is an internal process of devotion so as to experience Shakti, the creative source of Consciousness, The ultimate aim of the Himalayan tradition is to integrate Yoga, Vedanta and Tantra.
The uniqueness of the Himalayan Yoga tradition is that it is one of the few known remaining traditional yoga lineages that can trace a line of Masters in an unbroken way approximately over 5,000 years so that the original lineage is still ‘alive’.

 

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga combines Hatha Yoga and Chinese Medicine. It is also an attempt to present the energetic sciences and ancient wisdom traditions of The Tantra and The Tao as complimentary descriptions of the same system. The aim with Yin Yoga is to integrate Hatha Yoga and Chinese medicine as a science to realize the ultimate possibility.

Whether you are a student of Yoga or a teacher, or both; if you seeking to experience the highest goals of the adepts, the sages, the masters, then this course will lead you towards a greater depth for which you may have been longing.
