110-hrs Yin Yang – Finding the balance 

Jun 26-Jul 8, 2018 (off on Jul 2)  8am – 5pm

The purpose of an asana practice is to heal the body and balance the mind, and to help us cultivate an equanimous attitude towards all experiences in our lives. It’s important to tune into the needs of our bodies to achieve the body-mind balance.

We start by studying our unique body structure and how to move according to our body to have an effective practice. We then study the energetic makeup of different asana groups and how to sequence them in a vinyasa or hatha class. After which we turn our focus to the softer aspect of yin yoga, and finally blending vinyasa and yin to create different chemistry within an asana class.
