Are you someone who puts everyone else’s needs before their own, or do you tend to worry a lot, or have stomach ache or digestive problems? If so, this Yin class - which will boost your digestive system, open up your hips and release the spine - is for you!
By stimulating these areas - which are connected to the Spleen & Stomach meridians - with various Yin poses you will energize the energetic quality of Earth.José will explain how your body, emotional state or energetic state will show you when this elemental energy Earth is out of balance or needs a boost.
To aid the process of self-nurture and digestion of emotions, food or thoughts we will also use pranayama to calm the mind and Yin poses to stimulate the hands, feet, wrists, ankles, and free your hips, belly and spine. If emotions, thoughts, memories or physical release come up, allow yourself to observe them. Anything that comes up is there for a reason; it wants to be seen and experienced. Different options are given for each pose, so you can adapt them to your needs.
Props: 2 blocks, blanket, bolster, cushion.
This class is part of the Yin Yoga and the 5 Elements program.
