YANG/YIN YOGA & GONG BATH WORKSHOP

Most of us are seeking out balance in our lives, but we don’t know how to achieve it, maintain it, or why we fell out of balance in the first place. The Taoists teach us about two opposing energies called “yin” or in-flowing energy and “yang” out-flowing energy. The “yang” energy is how we are out in the world, our power, how we get things done. The “yin” energy is our internal world, our relationship to ourselves, our ability to get quiet and receive. These energies need to be in an even flow for us to feel energized and relaxed at the same time. In this two- hour practice, we will divide our time evenly between these two forces. The first part of our sequencing will begin with the “yang” practice in which we will heat the body through sun salutations and standing postures seamlessly put together into a vinyasa flow sequence. This time is designed to burn off impurities, to literally melt away the tension and stress that resides in the pockets of the body. The second half of the practice will take the open cleansed body through long hip openers, restorative postures, pranayama and meditation. Your svasana is the final part of the practice where we bathe you in the healing sounds of the gong. This process will rejuvenate the body leaving you feeling peaceful, passionate and balanced.

An evening with Dana Kraft and Clay Allen.
