Through anchors for mental concentration, intimate attention on breathing and tools for concscious release of holding patterns in body, mind and breath, Yin and Restorative Yoga impacts our physical, energetic and emotional health on ever-deepening levels. Combined with daily pranayama and meditation as well as sessions in somatic enquiry, this contemplative practice stimulates and balances the subtle body and the multi-dimensional web of connective tissues. Together, these practices provide a deeply nourishing platform to embrace the purity of presence and enquire into, and inhabit, the many facets of being.
We begin the study days with a dynamic led Yang Yoga practice, meditation and pranayama. The daytime study sessions cover a variety of topics in lectures and enquiry on the mat. Ample time will be spent on the teaching and practice of a range of Yin and Restorative Yoga postures, supported with a comprehensive, illustrated study manual.
Led by two teachers, you will receive ample personal guidance and attention in both the Yang and Yin/Restorative aspect of the practices, with individual adjustments and modifications, where appropriate. One afternoon we will go off site and take our studies on a boat while exploring the beautiful coastline of South West Turkey.
