Yin Practice with Chuck Frenkel
North Shore Yoga–Northfield
November 24th, 2013; January 26th & April 27th, 2014
4:45 pm–7:45 pm
Join us for this special yin yoga practice
where we will take the time to explore the full range of yin
yoga asanas (postures) while enjoying a deep meditative awareness.
Practitioners of yin yoga experience a meditative calm, helping
to restore balance while increasing energy. During our practice,
we will take an inward journey using the yin practice to help
us to gently open our bodies while focusing on stillness and
the breath. We will re-learn how to relax and become more mindful,
journeying inward, enjoying the moment. We will also enjoy
a pranayama practice, some readings related to the yin practice,
meditation as well as the led asana practice. Join us for this
very special event and deepen your yin practice.
Yin yoga is
a gentle yoga practice which focuses on loosening and stretching
our connective tissues, opening and restoring the joints and
invoking a remarkable feeling of freedom and lightness in the
body. Yin yoga works by gently stretching the connective tissues
allowing the body's energy to flow more freely. Yin yoga consists
primarily of seated asanas that are held for a period of time
allowing gravity to do most of the "work".
