Pranayama Workshop with Gongs
The Breath is always reflecting back at us the mental landscape, the emotional and the physical body. If the breath is laboured there is much that these aspects of ourselves require assistance to be released and if the breath is fluid, abundant these aspects of ourselves have found space to be free. This is just touching a surface level of the power our breath has in facilitating ones own freedom and harmony.

What is Yin Yoga - Yin Yoga is deeply rooted in TCM aspects and a somatic approach to dive inward more passively and connect to the subtle body. This always begins with gentleness, so the individual feels safe to explore arising emotions, feelings and thoughts that may be uncomfortable at times to sit with.
The Yin Yoga practice is reflecting the statement that less is more and is scientifically proven as a form of therapy for trauma, stress, and rehabilitation. So the aim is to allow the participant to be guided or invited into postures that best suit their body shape, with the support of some or many props. This helps the individual feel a sense of comfort and rest while meeting themselves with where they are at in the moment. Our body has an opportunity to heal when it returns to wholeness.
This stasis is our natural state of being, but through life experiences and circumstances we become fragmented which can close off parts of ourselves, that at the time, may have served us to survive or protect ourselves or to keep us safe in some particular way. This practice helps us to assist these aspects of ourselves in being heard and feeling held and see ourselves from a different perspective.
