Sweet Surrender | Yin Yoga & Reiki

April 9, Sunday 12:30-2:30pm at Sat Nam Yoga Chicago

Find stillness and greater depth in your yoga practice. 

 

The extended hold of Yin Yoga poses apply moderate pressure to the connective tissues- the tendons, fascia, and ligaments restoring elasticity and flexibility. On an energetic level, Yin enhances the flow of prana (life force) in the tissues around the joints where energy often stagnates, resulting in better organ health and a stronger immune system.

 

Most postures are seated and are held longer than normal as you find your appropriate edge. A Yin practice conditions the tissue to be more elastic. You'll work through postures to create an opening in your body that you have never known allowing you to get deeper in your poses. 

Each student will receive generous doses of individual Reiki from Cassandra. Treating multiple parts of the body to create physical and energetic balance, this deep inner healing is further supported by the soothing properties of Healing Crystals and Aromatherapy.​
