Yin Yoga: Chinese Medicine Movement Principles and Five Element Theory - Part 1

In this 2-class series we will take a deep dive into Chinese Medicine’s theory and application of the Yin Yoga Meridian Stretches through the lineage of Masunaga through present day Yin Yoga masters.

Part One is devoted to exploring the Yin Yoga poses and Chinese Medicine Theory for 3 of the 5 Phases – Fire, Earth, & Metal. Part 2 is devoted to exploring the same for Water, and Wood.

In addition, we will work with brief meditations and specific affirmations to broaden our understanding of the mind/body/spirit application of these practices.

Yin Yoga is based on the ancient Taoist (Chinese Medicine) 5 Phase Theory which explores the 5 phases in nature (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, & Wood) and how they exist and operate within the body. All poses in Yin Yoga are Chinese Medicine Meridian stretches and correspond with the 5 Phase organ networks in the body.

In this workshop we will soften into these poses, just as Masunaga instructed us to soften and practice stillness and deep breathing in these Meridian Stretches, with no agenda, simply observation.

Please join us for this in-depth exploration into these practices that directly inform our Shiatsu technique.
