Live & via ZOOM: Yin Yoga I Immersion: Introduction to Practicing & Leading--@ Namaspa Yoga Community | Bend, OR

Location: Namaspa Yoga Community | Bend , OR

Deepen your understanding, knowledge, practice and teaching of Yin Yoga in a light-hearted and supportive atmosphere.

Yin is one of the fastest growing styles of yoga and helps tone connective tissue, ligaments and tendons which are critical to our physical well-being and range of motion. Postures are practiced on the floor and each is held for 3-5 or more minutes. As a result, the body is energized, encouraging a free flow of chi/prana—the “life force” of the body that often gets blocked or stagnant.

IN THIS TRAINING YOU WILL:

  • Learn about Yin Yoga history and philosophy

  • Explore the differences between Yin and Yang styles of Yoga and the benefits of Yin practice

  • Gain a basic understanding of energy/prana/chi and the meridians and connective tissues

  • Establish a safe practice using compression and tension

  • Explore the major Yin Yoga asanas

  • Learn to shape yin energy and lead classes using the Baptiste methodology

  • Practice teach Yin Yoga and receive specific, concrete feedback to inform your future teaching

No prior experience is necessary. Accessible and to yoga teachers, students and seekers—suitable for all levels of practitioner. Please bring your journal, pen, snacks, water bottle, mat, a bolster if you have one, if not bring a bed pillow and if you would like, a blanket.

Investment: $125, $99 pre-reg if paid by 12/1 // $99 LIVE ZOOM ACCESS

Facilitated by Brandy Berlin. Brandy will inspire and embolden you to break open your forbidden happiness both on and off your mat. Co-Owner of Namaspa Yoga Community, Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher, E-RYT500 & Reiki Master, Brandy is notorious for her radically authentic, playfully powerful, comically introspective offerings.

2019 Beloved Festival: Ground Your Charge with an Evoke Energy Yin Yoga Experience

2019 Beloved Festival: Ground Your Charge with an Evoke Energy Yin Yoga Experience

Friday, August 10 6:30-7:45p @the Beloved Festival, Yoga Pavilion, Tidewater, OR

Grounding is crucial for healing. Relieve pain, stress and anxiety, gain focus and improve sleep in this experience that infuses the quiet of Yin Yoga with a conscious collection of somatic, eastern and energy medicine healing practices including Reiki, breath work, meditation, visualizations, self-acupressure, Thai massage inspired assists, aromatherapy, and sound bathing.

Evoke postures, practiced on the floor, and held for 5-15 minutes focus on the body’s fascial network as a sensory organ. These longer holds allow students to experience the richness of physical sensation in the course body. Followed by a substantial counterpose students are then guided to direct attention to the micro-sensory, subtle energy sensations of the body.

Through sacred stillness, this ‘sensitivity attunement’ heals by grounding the charge of the Central Nervous System which facilitates optimal parasympathetic health for profound and lasting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

As a result your body is nourished, and energized, encouraging a free flow of chi, the 'life force' that often gets blocked or stagnant.

Yin Yoga II Immersion:  Exploring the Energy Body

Yin Yoga II Immersion: Exploring the Energy Body

LOCATION: Namaspa Yoga Community | Bend, Oregon

Join Brandy Berlin and Suzy Aragon in this full day workshop to deepen your understanding and teaching of Yin Yoga and its relationship to the energy body. The basic substance of a person is energy. The motions of life are energy. Explore this experientially and feel the physics of the mind and body connection through the charge in your own body and walk away ready to integrate this wisdom into your practice and teaching of Yin (and Healing Flow) classes.

Yin focuses on the toning the body’s deep connective tissues, rather than muscles, to improve our physical well-being and functional range of motion. Long held floor postures are practiced with an emphasis on relaxation of muscles, finding an appropriate individual depth, mindfulness of breath and body and holding for time. Yin also promotes the release of stagnant prana/chi/life force energy and encourages our parasympathetic nervous system (relaxation) response.

IN THIS TRAINING WE DELVE MORE DEEPLY INTO:

  • How Yin practice affects meridians, nadis, chakras, energy/prana/chi

  • The meridians and chakras as energy systems

  • The 6 main meridians strongly affected by Yin—where they are, what they affect, why does it matter

  • Foundations and techniques of sequencing, transitions and flow in a Yin practice

  • Gain a basic understanding of the Central Nervous System and its role in overall health and well-being

  • Expand your repertoire of Yin poses & wall Yin

  • Contraindications and modifications of common medical conditions

  • Introduce and experience associated fields of energy work to enhance your Yin practice

  • Shaping yin energy and leading classes using the Baptiste methodology

  • Practice teach Yin Yoga and receive specific, concrete feedback to inform your future teaching

No prior experience is necessary. Accessible and to yoga teachers, students and seekers—suitable for all levels of practitioner. Yin I is recommended but not required—just a working knowledge of Yin will suffice. Please bring your journal, pen, snacks, water bottle, mat, a bolster if you have one, if not bring a bed pillow and if you would like, a blanket.
