Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues of the chest, shoulders, hips, pelvis, and lower spine, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness through long held postures with the use of props. Hot Yin Yoga compliments a more active (Yang) practice because it improves flexibility, ease and balance. Heated to 100 degrees.
In this upcoming workshop, we will work with crystals for meditation and healing.
Crystals and stones have been used for healing purposes by ancient civilizations for thousands of years. The body and quartz are both made up of silicon-dioxide (a mineral). The composition/sacred geometry of crystals naturally resonates with the vibration of your subtle bodies (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) and helps transmit your prana, life force, more freely/openly throughout the body.
Crystals are conduits for healing (to make sound, whole and healthy). They: 1. Facilitate & balance energy flow by moving stagnate energies, calming overly rapid energies, focusing or diffusing energies. 2. Transmit, absorb and release particular energies to/from the body. 3. Help release physical, mental, and emotional blockages. 4. Alleviate physical pain, help clear up ailments, and calm the mind and nervous system.
In yoga, one of the main reasons we move through poses and shapes is to prepare the body
for meditation. Incorporating crystals into our yoga and meditation practices can further help balance our chakras (energy centers) and bodies. Crystals allow us to settle into a meditative brain state and connect deeply with self and all that is.
This workshop is hands-on. We will work with crystals in the hands and on the body. Workshop to include guided meditation, healing, and breathwork techniques incorporating these beauties and healers of the Earth.
All are welcome! No prior crystal/stone experience or prerequisites needed.
To Bring/Wear: Loose, comfortable clothing and bring your own crystals, stones and sacred objects to charge. Workshop will be non-heated.
