THERAPEUTIC YOGA
Therapeutics yoga utilizes yoga postures and breath to help the body move into optimal alignment and balance in order to reduce and eliminate pain and stress. This practice is appropriate for all levels of yoga practitioners, including people working with chronic pain, illness or injuries. It allows ample time to address individual questions and concerns. Each session will evolve around whatever the students need to address the most.

YIN YOGA, THE QUIET PRACTICE
Yin Yoga is a more passive form of yoga practice. The postures are held for several minutes, sometimes for 10 or even longer. The muscles (= yang tissue) stay mostly relaxed so that the deep connective (= yin) tissue of the body opens, elongates as well as strengthens. A static, elongating “stress” on the ligaments (tissue around the joints) and other connective tissue not only makes it grow thicker and longer, it also opens the flow of energy through the energy pathways (called meridians or nadis) by increased production of hyaluronic acid (with age we start loosing it), which attracts water, and it literally helps to lubricate the joints and other connective tissue. This is especially good, because it has been scientifically confirmed that the meridians (or nadis) run within our connective tissue, and the greater the amount of hyaluronic acid is present, the greater and more balanced the flow of electromagnetic energy along the meridian lines. Also, generally, less problems with the joints.
I will also offer meditation instructions, so that while we hold postures for several minutes, we can use that time to cultivate the OPEN AWARENESS OF OUR BEING.
Yin practice is something we can easily do at home by ourselves. In each session we target a particular group of meridians with corresponding sequencing of the yin yoga postures.

CANDLELIGHT YOGA: SLOW STRETCH (YIN) & RESTORATIVE
This calming, healing, relaxing, and as-challenging-as-you-make-it yoga practice is open to students with all levels of experience. As the postures are held for longer time in a more passive and supported way, an increased flow of energy is experienced. The deep connective tissue of the body opens and stretches, releasing tension and stored-up toxins. Many yoga students are finding this kind of practice to be the perfect compliment to their more active yoga practices. Restorative poses offer benefits to both the body and mind, for conditions ranging from emotional and mental stress, insomnia, asthma, chronic pain, including back pain to migraines and depression.

Through the inquiry of discipline, precise alignment technique and ritual offering, we will dive deeply into the practice of more advanced and complex poses. You will be will be met at whatever level of practice you are, and guided to explore and expand your edges.
