Yin Yoga seeks to uncover the unique harmony that exists within our body, and regulate the flow of energy. As trauma manifests in our experience, our energy exchange with our environment and others around us becomes unbalanced. We may disconnect from our physical form, and invite that trauma into our bodies where it lingers. The Yin practice asks from the practitioner to find stillness and meditation in a small collection of intentional poses, and explore the stories that lie deep within our muscles, joints, and bones. With intense sensation as an anchor, we will observe with interest and care how this energy moves through us.
