Join Chuck Frenkel and Polly Liontis in 2013 for a five part series, Date Night Yoga for Couples—an experience devoted to having fun while exploring yoga as a couple. Chuck and Polly will teach partnered Yin Yoga poses designed to strengthen the energy body for every season. Each workshop will include pranayama, yin yoga partnered poses, a meditation on each element, chanting, and a singing bowl meditation to help balance and align your chakras.
Yoga means “union” on every level—mind, body and spirit. This is a wonderful opportunity to bond deeply with your partner, cultivating an intimate field of energy between the two of you. Sink into a deeper connection with your significant other as you link your bodies, minds and spirits while utilizing yoga poses, synchronized breathing and an intimate meditation on the sensations you create while exploring partner yoga.
Join us for this exciting, one-of-a-kind series which tailors the Yin Yoga practice to the Five Phases or Seasons of the Year.
To gain a full understanding of the benefits of practicing with the seasons we encourage you to register for the series as a whole.
About Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga is based on the ancient Taoist (Chinese Medicine) Five Phase Theory which states that the five phases (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, & Wood) exist not only in nature but within the body as well and correspond to the different organ networks within the body. Yin Yoga is unique in that it combines the knowledge and practice from two vast bodies of knowledge—Yoga and Chinese medicine.
Different sets of Yin Yoga poses correspond with the different organ systems in the body, as well as to the seasons as seen by the Taoist philosophers—Winter, Spring, Summer, Indian Summer, and Autumn. Learn how to tailor your yoga practice to the seasons of the year. You will come to have a greater appreciation of the effects and gifts each season has for us. This will be a unique journey into understanding the practice of Yin Yoga as well as aligning ourselves with the energies of the seasons through your yoga practice. This series will give you a new understanding of yourself and your partner in relationship to the beauty of the natural world.
