Easing Tension from the Neck & Upper Back

Far too many of us know first hand the aches of tension in the neck and upper body and just want it to go away! In this class we will identify and ease common holding patterns and misalignments and explore, actively and passively, ways to restore peace to the upper body. If you’re one of those folks who carries all your worries and stress in your neck and shoulders this workshop is for you! Think of it! Hours spent undoing those tight muscles - aaah.

Incorporating a daily yoga and meditation practice into our life keeps us attuned to the importance of living ordinary moments with awareness. Nevertheless, even the most dedicated practitioners hit plateaus and need opportunities to become re-inspired. In this workshop Sarah will provide an atmosphere for balancing the body, heart and mind through active and passive yoga poses, as well as offering teachings on Mindfulness meditation so that we can deepen or develop a skillful and committed meditation practice.

Yin yoga is an essential compliment to our more active styles and offers a vehicle to develop our contemplative nature. The Yin style also keeps the body supple at its core while encouraging stagnate chi (prana) to flow throughout the joints, engendering a quality of steady ease. The flow practice helps maintain core stability while enhancing our creative, active energy.

On Saturday we will focus on standing poses and inversions, a Kidney Yin session and mindfulness practice, with teachings about turning the mind toward meditation on a daily basis.

On Sunday Sarah will share a flow sequence focused on backbends with a liver enhancement Yin session, some pranayama, and a longer mindfulness meditation practice.

These practices encourage an integration of our Yin and Yang aspects of being, demonstrating how yoga practices can value both vitality and insight. A guided and silent mindfulness meditation will be included in both days.

This workshop is suitable for anyone who has been doing Yoga for at least one year and has a strong interest in meditation.
