Restorative Yoga & Yin Practices
25-Hour Training Retreat | April 8-10
Self care awaits you during the next 25hr Module from Chakra Flow University
Restorative Yoga & Yin Practices
Casa Chakra Flow, Chatlotte, NC
Imagine stillness, imagine silence, imagine sitting with your thoughts and emotions, all while in the midst of physical sensations and complete support.
In this training we'll focus on the meditative practices of Yin and Restorative Yoga. Yin is a unique way to deepen your yoga practice and touch tissues rarely worked in the more active yang style of yoga. The art of Restorative Yoga allows the physical body to dwell in a posture for longer, fully supported by props and completely surrendered to gravity. This allows for a unique healing that supports the para-sympathetic nervous system and helps to balances our stress hormones.
These unique styles of yoga allow you to enter deep states of relaxation where you can effect change in the tissue and fascia of the body as well as your energetic and emotional body. So much more than poses that target connective tissue, Yin & Restorative Yoga are both a platform for personal inquiry and responsive self-care. These more meditative practices offer us the much needed space for contemplation and reflection. By gifting ourselves this space of quietude, we are able to restore our psyche and step into the world more receptively.
This training is not just for yoga teachers. With today’s overstressed and over worked culture we are teeming with stress hormones and under active in the feel good hormones of serotonin and dopamine. Therefore anyone who is interested in finding more balance and healing is welcome to attend.
You can choose to stay at Casa Chakra Flow or opt to drive in exclusively for the training hours. Not only will you experience 25 hrs of Restorative and Yin Yoga training but you will do so as you embody these teachings with a weekend dedicated to your own healing and rejuvenation.
