Relative Measures. The Elements Within Yin

  • The YogaTherapies Studio 214a Rothbury Terrace Newcastle upon Tyne, England, NE6 5DE United Kingdom (map)

The practice of Yin Yoga evolved through the works of leading practitioners such as Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers who infused their knowledge of anatomy and western psychology into the wisdom of traditional chinese and traditional yoga practices.

In this weekend immersion we look at the structures of the meridians of traditional chinese medicine and they relate to the organs, emotions, the 5 elements and their cycles, the principles of Yin & Yang and movement of Chi all alongside the broader models of the physical and subtle body in yoga practice.

We explore the various effects and benefits that can be experienced when there are blockages in particular meridians and how to sequence your practice in a way that considers the deeper dimensions of yoga practice and offers the possibility of transforming both physical and mental health.

Each day we will explore several practices to embody and experience the theory presented.
