Join me to explore and experience the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Yin Yoga. This practice will include an 90-minute yin yoga class that promotes strength and the mobility of Qi ( energy) flow while also building fluidity and elasticity throughout your connective tissues. In each session we will be focusing on a specific meridian pair. Throughout the class, we will touch on themes central to that organ system, pulling inspiration from this experience to connect us to our own nature.
You can expect a yin yoga practice sequenced to stimulate two or more organ systems, as viewed through an Eastern Medicine lens, and a practice that honors our undeniable connection to the natural world.
