See how meditation and movement intersect: Connecting body and mind through meditation and meditative Yin yoga
Especially in these times of being at home more than many of us are used to, we can feel claustrophobic. By connecting our mind and body, we can become more at ease with fear and anxiety.
We will practice short meditation sessions and Yin yoga, which can be a wonderful practice to support our ability to synchronize body and mind.
Yin yoga is a very gentle form where we hold poses for a longer period, without using muscle tension to stay in a pose. This practice helps to rejuvenate and restore the connective tissue that holds our muscles, bones, tendons and organs in place. By adjusting poses to our individual bodies, we begin to melt into the pose. Where things are stuck and rigid, we can begin to ease ourselves in to relaxing and feeling at home in our own skin.
