This workshop is aimed at yoga teachers and dedicated practitioners. We will spend 2.5 hours exploring the application of Yin Yoga and Mindfulness as a way of nourishing and supporting the physical and energetic bodies, as well as the mind, during the season of Summer.
We will engage in a Yin Yoga sequence for balancing the FIre element during Summer (including focusing on the Heart and Small Intestine meridians). We will also explore ways of adapting and modifying the postures to account for skeletal variations and differences in body type as well as ways of supporting injuries while practicing.
Please bring a notebook and pen – this workshop is a mix of practice and theory to inspire your practice and refine your teaching skills. You will take home with you a seasonal handout with an adaptable/variable yin yoga sequence for Summer that you can use to help plan classes, as well as seasonal tips for embracing Summer in your yoga practice and daily life.
