Yin Yoga, Pranayama, and Meditation Immersion with Julie Hsu

Yin yoga involves being in deep stretches for minutes at a time. The relatively long hold of postures creates the space for cultivating the observing mind and creating a meditation while in each posture. A posture practice of this kind leads nicely into seated pranayama and meditation.

Saturday June 3, 2017   1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Early bird discount (registered by May 30) $40 -> register and pay here
Workshop Fee (registration after May 30) $45 -> register and pay here

Our time together will include a short talk on yin yoga, an extended yin yoga practice, pranayama, and meditation.

Leave with tools to face life’s challenges with a spacious and calm mind. Connect with deeper aspects of yourself.
