Metal Season : Yin October All-Access Live+Library | Community

First Live Class October 8th

Join me for this 4-week live class series, where we will explore the practice of Yin Yoga. Autumn and the Metal Season are associated with the lungs and the large intestines and one's desire to move inward and contract. The lungs are also associated with sadness and grief, and thus the slow-down practice of Yin Yoga invites us as humans to explore and process these thoughts while experiencing the postures. The large intestines are associated with letting go of emotional and physical things. During October, we will be focusing on acknowledging any negative thoughts of sadness and grief, processing and letting go of any of those emotions that do not serve us. We will explore Yin Yoga Poses that stimulate the lungs and lung meridian and the concept of going inward for release and well-being.

As a community, we will focus on the core qualities of Yin Yoga and its rejuvenating effects on the Mind and Body, how the transitions between the Yin Yoga Poses allow us space to notice any physical, emotional, and spiritual happenings as they occur.

Yin Yoga Poses are held for more extended periods, thus providing an opportunity to go inward for self-reflection. We will also explore mindful movement practices centered on Yin(cooling) and Yang(warming) to use the Yin Yoga poses to get into our bodies instead of focusing on our body to get into poses. This Offering is open to all - Beginners are welcome
