Yin Yoga: Cultivating a Quiet Practice

Mind Body Zone, Fremont, CA  
For most of us, the nature of our work, exercise, and daily activities is very active, or Yang. To balance, we must cultivate a sense of stillness, or Yin. While Yang style practice activates the muscle tissue, Yin Yoga is designed to nourish the connective tissue, including the ligaments, tendons, and bones, and improve the flexibility and strength of the entire body while releasing withheld energy in the meridians. This workshop will consist of meridian theory as it relates to Yin Yoga Practice.

Internal Power Yoga

Internal Power Yoga
Mind Body Zone, Fremont, CA  Details TBA   

Modern forms of aerobic exercise and Yoga focus on intensive, repetitive movement to develop strength and stamina in the physical body. However, the stress of these practices can over time lead to injury, exhaustion and mental-emotional restlessness. Ancient forms of exercise including Taoist Yoga and the internal martial arts such as Tai Chi and Qi Gong instead use slow, gentle movements to activate the subtle body and cultivate physical power and balance from the inside out. In this workshop, we will control the body's energy or Qi through intentional movements that will open the Meridians and Chakras, and provide you with mental clarity, physical power and a deeper awareness to allow you to prevent and recover from stress.
