Yin yoga is a popular practice of slowing down and slow stretching. In this practice, there is an emphasis on poses stimulating energetic flows in the body. A new series of two-day courses on this emphasis will be led by Norman Blair and Kate Henley.
Norman is one of the most experienced Yin yoga teachers in the UK. Kate has been an acupuncturist since 1998 and is especially interested in how the internal practice of quiet forms of yoga support re-alignment and balance in our bodies.
Each two-day course will focus on pairs of meridians. We start by covering the theories that underpin Traditional Chinese Medicine by means of an introduction. We then look at the emotions and the physical issues that are connected with each meridian and its associated organ. Following from that, we explore which poses are particularly influential on these meridians and when it is especially beneficial to do which pose.
These course aspire to offer participants empowering tools for practice and encourage 'balance' as a way to good health.
Material will be presented in a way that is accessible and interactive. There will be practice of poses. A course manual is included in the cost.
Numbers are limited to 12; working together in a small group encourages interaction and engagement. Cost is £240 per two-day course (the price is the same whether online or in-person). To make an enquiry, please email email@example.com
