In that workshop, we work with the passive Yin energy by holding for 4 to 5 minutes in relaxation in one posture, but in between each posture, we do some active work to improve the effectiveness of the asana and set the body more receptive to the passiveness, by working after with the Yang energy of actions.
This is a classical 2h Workshop. Start with Pranayama, go into the flow of Asanas, let it go! and stop in Yoga Nidra before closure of the practice with om, appreciation, and dedication. This is a practice for increases your blood flow, and lowering the risk of heart attack, for better respiration, improvement of bone health, regulates your adrenal glands and boost the immunity system.
We do a few rounds of Surya namaskar too, we meditate most of the time lying down on the mat, we use stillness for concentration purposes. Actions like bandhas and particular pranayamas done during these classes are also Yang practices form. According to the level of each participant, particular pranayama can be recommendable, classes schema can be adopted to a particular need, if so I see.
The body needs relaxations as actions is needed, muscles can only relax and contract, the entire body must to be used, diversity in movements, asanas, relaxation postures, and meditation is key to a balanced flow of energy. As much a body is balanced, more the elements are balanced, more that person is near his or her nature. More you use your body to relax and to be active, the more the body performs its natural function.
There is time for all in this classe, to just be and feel joy, as well to do some movement and feel yourself whats ever comes. Feelings are impermanent and whats ever is so, will change from moment to moment according our habitual tendencies. That changes, are our object of attention during this practice as well, to observe how things changes in ourselves, like our body, has been changing through all the years, from the beginning till the end of the practice.
In Yoga, the asana practice has as goal, setup the body in pliable condition, to support the mind be focused in a single object, to seek samadhi, the single point concrentration meditation. For that reason, one needs to perform a long period of time in a particular postures, because of that many benefits become fruits of those practices. We should consider more the practice if we want more results, we do wanna be flexible, youth, strong, for that we need to practice accordingly.
In Yin Yoga we choose the more relaxed and use to put the body static and stable, to perform the 5min of practice in each side or posture, we can use the same amount of time or shorter like 2 or 3min, to a particular postures which require some action, or some breath exercise which will be also done with body movement, after this relax again in on postures, totally passive and allow the body and mind get the benefits of the switch.
Yin Yoga allow us to solve tensions and increasing body ability, we give time to fascia the works to a gradually and deeper work in the deep tissues. This optimize the energy flow in our bodies and allow as well to access these energies, with visualization and imagination. Perfection and mastering the posture is the method we use to balance and self-development during this workshop.
Here we are going to plug into Telluric and Cosmic energy to recharging our being with all the best intentions and authentic motivations, to keep life in balance and continuously develop ourselves.
knowledge about the Chakras System or previous practices using the Chakras is not required, but useful for knows how to use it.
The meditation in this workshop
in that workshop very often I use breathing meditation, the reason for using the breath as the object of meditation, is because the breath is always there, present within all of us, all the time, everywhere. Focus on the breath has enormous benefits, like increase the breath capacity, calming the mind and establish a connection with the subtle energetical body.
The meditation in the 5 senses are done when this workshop can take longer than 2h, at least 30min is required for this purpose. Let me speak in advance with the participants and see if this is wished.
