SURRENDER ,RESTORE, YIELD, LET GO
TRANSFORM THE SELF
Yin Yoga is a quiet medative practice which invites the individual to “ open the eyes on the inner space”. In this space we learn to accept all facets of the human nature as we dwell in being; cultivating love, compassion, flexibility, acceptance and nonjudgement. In our fast paced, quite often stressful world, the contrast of space and stillness can often be quite startling, even daunting and yet is so very healing and so very needed. In Yin Yoga we aim to find a balance of “doing” and “being” which then invite change… In our ability to surrender, yield and let go we are able to realign back to our true balance, which is our true nature.
Yin Yoga works to balance the chi (energy life force) in the body through longer holds in asanas, which gives time for the tough fibrous tissue and ligaments, known as fascia, to relax, release, and let go of deep seated tensions. Maps of chi lines, known as meridians run through the fascia and when opened up the channels become freer allowing the Chi to run more smoothly. Yin Yoga allows true healing, and acceptance.
Debra has been practicing and teaching Yin Yoga for 8 years and feels it offers the ideal complement to a more Yang practice of Vinyasa. She will be offering workshops throughout the UK.
