GumbyYoga workshop: Learn to Fly

Yin Yoga with Acupressure Master Class with Lisa

Yin Yoga with Acupressure Master Class with Lisa

The ancient Chinese knew that observing and understanding nature was
one of the ways for us to understand ourselves. Behind each season there
is an elemental energy; the Five elements – Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and
Wood. Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine recognize the natural
forces of energy, which regulate life. They called this chi. Chi is the breath
of life. It is what creates and nourishes the human spirit to give us energy.
Chi is the force of nature that moves energy through all matter.

Meridians are energy pathways that interface the outside of the body to the inside of the body. Since November is the element of Metal, we will be referring to the wisdom of the meridian theory and exploring a yin sequence built to harmonize the nervous system and optimize the flow of chi in our physical and energy body. In the fall, we stimulate those meridians of the lungs and large intestine. The poses selected can help with back, neck, and shoulder tension, respiratory issues, balance immune function, and release long-held emotions as we transition into a new season of life and let go of the summer.

This practice is suitable for all levels! Sign up below to reserve your mat space!
Cost- $30/person, $40/person if register after October 15th

This is one of our five seasonal Yin Yoga with Acupressure Masterclasses.

About Yin Yoga: Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Yin Yoga is a universal complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of exercise that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. While initially this style of yoga can seem slow, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses.

About the Instructor: Lisa Jang (AFAA, E-RYT, YACEP) studied Yin Yoga and bodywork with the industry’s most knowledgeable and skillful teachers. From with renowned teacher, author and spearhead of Yin Yoga, Bernie Clark to studying functional anatomy with Yin Yoga teachers, Paul & Suzee Grilley and many more. She studied Acupressure at McKinnon Massage Institute in Oakland, CA. Lisa has been teaching group fitness and yoga since 2001. Lisa currently co-teaches the 200 Hour Teacher Program and leads the Yin Yoga Teacher Training Program at Just Breathe {Yoga} Rivermark, The Yoga Company, Castro Valley and Studio Mandala in San Ramon.

2017 Yin Yoga Teacher Intensive - August 19 & 20, 26 & 27

Yin Yoga is based on floor postures practiced with an empathetic and yielding approach. The method is intended to reach parts of the body that would otherwise not be involved in the more yang-like yoga (such as Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Power) and is therefore a complementary tool, which also prepares you for meditation. Yin Yoga provides an opportunity to reach deeper parts of ourselves, which in everyday life is not given so much space.

Course description:

During this training you will learn how to teach Yin Yoga from a functional approach rather than an aesthetic or performance-related approach to yoga, with the aim of creating a meaningful experience for yourself and your students, to explore a personal yoga. You will study Yin Yoga with an approach to promote awareness of what is happening in the whole person through the body. The training is aimed at those who want a deeper understanding of Yin Yoga.
