Yin Yogapuncture Workshop
The workshop format will be: a brief introductory discussion followed by a “hands + needles on” yoga practice + acupuncture session culminating in vast connective tissue stretching + deep relaxation
The Yin Yoga Piece With Katelynn
Yin yoga is the practice of seated or supine postures that are designed to slowly coax the dense connective tissue (tendons, ligaments) into malleability. It is a passive practice and the postures are held for 3-5 minutes. With guidance and understanding gained from this workshop, students will be able to posturally tap into internal pharmacology, or channels known as the meridians.
The Acupuncture Piece With Daniel
The acupuncture points lie within these meridians and when they become blocked, disease process is possible. Acupuncture uses small, disposable needles to help unblock and re-direct energy currents, or chi. Building on the deep relaxation achieved in the yin practice, participants will receive an abridged acupuncture treatment.
