Introduction to Yin Yoga
The feminine or yin part of you longs to FEEL? to dive deep and experience the interconnectedness of everything. In the physical body, the connective tissues (ligaments, fascia, tendons) represent this unifying force, spread throughout the whole body binding all parts together; yet rarely is this delicate web appropriately exercised. Yin yoga works with this vital system through a series of sustained seated and supine postures designed to deeply stretch this tissue, especially in the spine, hips and shoulders, releasing deep layers of tension and tightness. So, if you: experience discomfort in any of those areas, want to work on your powers of being,vulnerability and receptivity, would like to reach deeper levels of relaxation, are looking for a compliment to your vinyasa practice or an aid for your meditation practice, or just want to get to know another part of yourself, please join Meghan.

Touch of Thai : Take 2
Jake will present a fun and informative introduction to Thai Yoga Massage. This ancient form of bodywork includes mindful touch and assisted stretching. Done on the floor, fully clothed and with no oils, it is often called 'passive yoga' and can offer profound healing for both those giving and receiving. This workshop will be a basic introduction to the practice and participants should expect to learn a simple, but complete full-body sequence by the end our time together. Note: the sequence and techniques covered will be different from the initial Touch of Thai Workshop including extended hands-on practice time!
