Looking to deepen your asana practice, initiate your body’s capacity to heal, and bring sustained peace and balance into your life? According to Taoist principles, all of creation is comprised of opposing, yet complimentary forces known as Yin and Yang. Yin represents the lunar aspects of nature: dark, dormant, cool, soft, supple, feminine, and yielding. Yang represents the solar aspects of nature: bright, active, strong, hot, fierce, masculine, and purposeful. In a world so often overstimulated and overstressed by Yang activities, we find ourselves riddled with aches, pains, stresses, and dis-ease which can lead to illness and injury.
Yin yoga combines Traditional Chinese Medicine with Ayurvedic science and wisdom to nourish the Yin aspects of our being, bringing balance and harmony to the whole. Yin yoga initiates the body’s innate intelligence and capacity to heal. Yin yoga poses are held passively for longer durations as a treatment to the connective tissues of the body—tendons, fascia, and ligaments to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility.
ANANTA’s unique Yin yoga approach utilizes the art of asana (the poses) as a skin to soul trajectory. Each yin session utilizes the practices of pranayama, meditation, and yogic philosophy infused with Thai massage, Reiki, Yoga Nidra, and ancient Marma therapy. The ANANTA Therapeutic Yin series stimulates the parasympathetic systems which are responsible for improving our state of health and wellbeing. This approach to Yin initiates an internal alchemy—cultivating inner-awareness, clarity, and peace both internally and externally; body, mind, and heart combined.
