The Taoist Yin form of yoga is an effective way to still the mind and support the body for a longer and more comfortable sitting practice. Yin-style yoga can be practiced by everyone, whether a yogi or not. With patience and trust, practitioners often find their bodies more open and flexible than expected. Lisa Jansen and Valorie Beer will offer Yin Yoga postures to free the hips and loosen the lower back. Intertwined with the Yin part of practice will be guided meditation, spiritual affirmations and mantras to bring stillness to the mind and prepare for the sitting part of the workshop. About Mind, Body, Art How do we use works of art to connect with ourselves and others? Explore this idea through movement, meditation, stories and—of course—art. Each session offers an opportunity to delve deeper into practices that balance energy, align your body and go inward to just chill.
