Tao Yin Yoga provides a basic foundation for life’s exuberance and vitality. If this is nurtured, cultivated, and cherished, additional energy is generated that can be used for personal healing, raising one’s resonance, allowing greater focus in physical, mental, or spiritual pursuits. It can also be effectively directed in those areas of our world where help is most needed.
Stress, environmental and internal toxins, free radicals, poor nutrition, deficient oxygen levels in the blood, hypoglycemia, and other contributing factors result in debilitating cycles in the body, leaving us in a paradigm of fear, competition, and survival and imperils our mental, emotional, and physical health.
Tao Yin Yoga works on the physical level of the body by regulating and harmonizing the muscles and bones, the respiratory function, the circulatory function, digestive function, and the immune and nervous system by incorporating gentle yoga exercises, along with self-massage and Qi Gong elements. Emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects are addressed in this workshop through breathing and meditation techniques.
Coupled with an understanding of how whole foods can anchor our life and dissolve stress, this workshop can provide an understanding of how exercise and lifestyle choices are a foundation for a vibrant and healthy life. Acquire practical short cuts, for a busy lifestyle, and learn to read trouble signs before they manifest!
