Winter is the energy of the element Water, the time of rest and hibernation, when nature retreats to build up its reserves for its next cycle of seasons. Winter is the most yin of the seasons beckoning us to conserve our energy, to slow down, restore and introspect. It is high time for self-care and a perfect time for Yin yoga!
Kidney and urinary bladder are the organs that belong to Water element within us and correspond to the winter season, so our yin yoga session will focus on poses and movements that will stimulate these meridian lines in the body. In each session you will get a little theory of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and how it links to Yin yoga, but mostly we practice .. being still, listening, unpacking, inquiring, resting ...
New to Yin? No worries! YIN YOGA is suitable for all levels. It uses long-held passive stretches to put pressure on deeper tissues of the body and stimulate energy channels to enhance and strengthen the flow Qi (prana) in the body. It can offer quite a challenge - to stay present and allow various sensations to arise, yet the overall effect of the practice is immensely calming, stabilising and soothing.
We will start January 10 and then continue until end of January every WEDNESDAY at 8 pm at Buddhistisches Tor Berlin at Grimmstrasse 11C, Kreuzberg.
