Return to Stillness – with Annie McGhee and Ven Kartson

Stillness of the mind can only come  through stillness of the body

In this Yin yoga workshop you will go deeper with longer held poses to create greater calmness of the mind and more openness and flexibility of the body.

Yin yoga is a perfect counterbalance for us in our busy lives with the mind constantly processing information, as it allows us to drop into ‘being ‘, rather than ‘doing’. Holding poses longer and passively in Yin practice is deeply nourishing and has a myriad of benefits, for both the body and the mind. 

In these asanas (poses) we move beyond the muscles, which are Yang, as they’re soft & elastic, into the Yin connective tissues (the ligaments & the fascia), which are stiff & inelastic. By keeping the muscles soft, we release deeper layers of connective tissue, increasing mobility in the body, especially in the joints and hips, which can help with our seated meditations. 

On a subtler level, the Yin sequences improve the flow of prana (chi/life-force) through the energy channels (nadis/meridians) into the internal organs and tissues around the joints, where energy may have become stagnant.

Through the practice of Yin yoga, we can successfully combine both asanas and meditation into a deeply transformative practice. 

Suitable for all levels.

Please bring your own mat and bolster and wear comfortable, modest clothing.

Venerable Kartson, Chenrezig Institute’s interpreter extraordinaire, will be leading us in a morning meditation on the body and mind, bringing a wonderful dimension to our day. When this type of meditation is practiced together with yoga, it allows us to slow down and open more deeply, to calmly acknowledge our thoughts, emotions and physical sensations in and out of our yoga practice.
