Yin Yoga: Gateway to Svadhyaya

Teacher: Sandy Scherer

Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to balance more active yang practices because you hold poses for longer periods of time, with a focus on deeper connective tissues of the body at your joints. The gift of this practice, however, lies not only in creating space in the body, but also in your heart and mind. It is a gateway to Svadyaya or self-reflection, the fourth Niyama, one of the eight limbs of yoga. As you stay in the poses in silence, you are invited to explore self-awareness as you witness your experience without judgment. In this particular practice, we’ll focus on the Manipura Chakra at the solar plexus, and the related stomach and spleen meridians. Accessible for all levels.
