Do you want to ground your knowledge of the wisdom teachings with a sense of lineage and science? Are you an Acupuncturist who wants to learn to support patients with movement?

Learn through Experience

We'll be immersing ourselves in the ancient wisdom of the energy body, and experiencing first hand how the energy moves through the channels that traverse the body and connect the organ systems in a multifaceted network of communication.  We'll have the opportunity to draw the meridians in small groups, and will work with poses that help balance specific meridians for therapeutic benefits and deep restoration.

Balance to the Nervous System

The pace of the modern world often favors an overstimulated, over-stressed, and overactive nervous system, which correlates to the sympathetic "fight or flight" response and the Yang principle in Chinese Medicine.   Yin Yoga helps us restore balance to the nervous system, helps retrain our bodies to get into "rest and digest" mode, and to replenish our reserves so we can experience lasting health, vitality, and inner peace.
