YIN YOGA WORKSHOPS  –  MASTER CLASSES  –  3h CPD

 “The highest spiritual practice is self-observation without judgment.” –Swami Kripalur.

 

Come and join Regina Kerschbaumer for three hours of relaxing Yin Yoga while she shares her warm teaching style and extensive knowledge and expertise of the principles of Yin Yoga. All workshops are suitable for teachers wanting to learn about this practice as well as students of any level – even those new to yoga who want to try a more gentle approach to poses. (Teachers can gain Yoga Alliance CPD).  Regina trained directly with Paul Grilley (the “founder” of Yin Yoga) in 2006 and has regularly updated her knowledge of this transformational style of yoga through annual training with Paul & Suzee Grilley and Sarah Powers. The workshops also incorporate her extensive knowledge of anatomy, meditation and mindfulness gained in teaching yoga for over the years.

Yin Yoga works the deeper levels of the body: the connective tissues of the ligaments, fascia, joints and bones and the energetic channels of the meridians, nerves and blood system. The long held, passive nature of the Yin postures give time for releasing tightness within the joints, but also for a deeper journey to unfold into the meditative aspects of yoga – a bridge to living life mindfully.

Immerse yourself in the practice and theory of Yin Yoga, Meridian Lines, Chakras and Mindfulness while we analyse, observe and practice the yin postures in depth.

 Suitable for yoga practitioners of any level. Especially for students and teachers who would like to gain a deeper understanding of the principles of Yin Yoga. These workshops count towards CPD for Yoga Alliance UK teachers.

Then we will progress into the Dragon Sequence – from ’walking to flying the Dragon’! The Yang flows are designed to stimulate the circulation and flow of energy (prana/chi) through directed awareness and vigorous movements.

The session will end to the soothing and healing sounds of the Earth Gong during meditation – presented by Gong masters Garry and Olga Evans.

After a ‘bring and share’ lunch – Hilde Eiselin – a Neuroscience expert and Yoga teacher from Ireland, will present to us with an interactive introduction: ‘Live the Life You Love’.

The afternoon’s Yin Yoga Session will be a preparation for the colder months approaching. “Let the leaves fall and settle…” A nourishing inward journey preparing the body to shed and let go. During this 2 hour workshop we will turn inward, to explore the Lungs and Large Intestine Meridians, associated with the autumn. A mindful ‘chill-out’ while you reset and re-balance every level of your being. You will feel grounded, centred and able to take a deep full breath in to let go of the things in your life that no longer serve you.
