Yin Yoga Immersion – Staying Healthy with the Seasons

Yin Yoga is a powerful practice that deepens the mind-body connection. Through muscle relaxation and release of tension, breath awareness and visualizations, Yin Yoga not only inspires the circulation of life force energy (prana) throughout the body but also instills an attitude that allows you to more fully prepare for meditation. It’s a wonderful companion to the active, fitness-focused forms of yoga celebrated in the West today, and one that when added to your repertoire, whether as a practitioner or student, can increase your flexibility, enhance circulation in the body and quiet your mind with longer held accessible postures.

Yin Yoga can be even more transformative if practiced in alignment with the seasons and the energetic qualities that each offers. This approach is at the foundation of Yin Yoga Immersion—Staying Healthy with the Seasons, taught by Melina Meza, a pioneer in the seasonal approach to wellbeing since 2008.

Melina will teach Yin Yoga sequences primed for each of the seasons, as well as share ways to work with the five elements (space, air, fire, earth, water), nutrition strategies, acupressure points and meridians, and yogic philosophy to support well-being throughout the year.

This immersions is perfect for yoga practitioners who want to balance their active practice with a slower meditative style of movement as well as yoga teachers who wish to broaden their offerings and help prepare students for meditation and healthy living.
