June Online | Yin Yoga & Meditation | The Art of Letting Go

Dear Friends,

 "We can always begin again. No matter what happens, no matter how long it's been, no matter how far from our aspirations we may have strayed, we can always begin again." --Sharon Salzberg

What are the benefits of Yin Yoga & Meditation? 
  • Boost immunity as you unblock energy to increase vitality and health.  
  • Release tension to experience calm and relaxation.
  • Increase your capacity and flexibility on the physical, mental and emotional levels.
  • Create the habit of mindfulness.
  • Build resilience; with every breath, we can begin again.
  • Cultivate a sense of spaciousness in your heart, body, mind and soul.
You will receive an email on weekday mornings to inspire your daily practice.
  • Week 1 - Grounding (feet, legs, stimulate stomach meridians and digestion)
  • Week 2 - Creativity (hips and midriff, stimulate the kidney meridian + oceanic breathing)
  • Week 3 - Heart Opening (chest, upper back, arms, hands, and stimulate the lung meridian)
  • Week 4 - Connection and Integration (whole body, all encompassing)
The Three Tattvas of Yin Yoga Practice:
A tattva is the reality of a thing, or its category or principal nature. 
  1. Come into the pose to an appropriate depth ("playing our edges").
  2. Resolve to remain still.
  3. Hold the pose for a time.
               --Sarah Powers

Remembering these three principles as you practice will simplify everything. 
  • Monday through Friday, daily practice of 15 minutes depending on personal preference and recommendations offered.
  • Practice will include seated Meditation, Yin Yoga pose, and Shavasana to rest and integrate your practice.
  • Practice can happen on its own or be incorporated into the beginning or end of your current home practice.  
  • Weekend homework options 1) Repeat a daily practice from the week, 2) String the poses together in sequence: (seated meditation, 5 yin yoga poses and shavasana), 3) Be creative!, 4) Play hooky.
