The quiet practice of Yin Yoga is a body meditation that can take us into the depths of our emotional and subtle energetic bodies. In this workshop we will explore these layers of our being in simple postures as waves of live sound vibration and poetry emerges and dissipates. We will have the support of blankets, blocks, and bolsters to allow us to find softness and ease in this experience. This practice will nourish balance, ease, and inner peace.
Open to all, for all! No experience of Yoga necessary.
