Yin to Open the Heart Space
Sunday 18 February 2018, 10.30am – 1pm
Meridian lines are part of traditional Chinese medicine and also a part of Yin Yoga. These are the energetic pathways of our bodies. If they become stagnant or stuck it prevents the flow of chi and chi is what is thought to support our natural health and wellbeing.
The meridians for the heart and lungs are concentrated mainly in the upper body so around the chest and deep down into the arms. This workshop will focus primarily on neck, shoulder and upper back stretches to target these meridian lines making it a great practice for anyone with shoulder tension, arm tension or upper back or neck pain.
When our heart chakra (energy centre) is properly aligned, past hurts are said to no longer harm us. We are filled with love, compassion and self-acceptance. This Yin Yoga sequence is designed to draw awareness to the heart space, helping you release past hurts and open up to the infinite possibilities of the future.
Non-members are very welcome to the Felda Gym. This is run at a gentle pace so whilst suitable for complete beginners, is also a nice counter practice to more dynamic forms of yoga. Bring your lovely self and your favourite blanket if you wish. Wear warm, loose clothing.
