Aroma Yin Yoga (needleless acupuncture)
Teacher: Klára Burgess
*open class / course 13.9. - 22.11. 2021
Yin Yoga helps distribution of chi into the cells and organs of the body. It significantly contributes to the flexibility of joints, strengthens the immune system, releases excess tension and brings a feeling of ease and lightness in the body. It effects organ health in the same way as acupuncture by applying constant pressure alongside the meridians. To achieve this, poses are held for at least 3 minutes. We learn to be fully engaged in feeling our bodies and mental states as well as to observe how we are responding to our moment –to-moment experience as it unfolds. It is therefore an in-depth training in participatory observation and enhancement of the body, heart, and mind.

As human beings, we naturally experience stress, along with difficult physical sensations, feelings and moods. The core skill that you will learn and practice is MINDFULNESS − a way of paying attention to what goes on in the present moment in your body and mind, without getting carried away by worrying or other negative stress-amplifying reactions. Being mindful can significantly change the way we relate to stress and difficulty, and enhance our capacity to cope on a daily basis.
