Yin & Yang: Balancing movement and stillness

With Marije Paternotte

In this workshop we will explore movements and passive postures that affect our body on an energetic level. By focusing on the subtle effects of our practice we add a new and deeper dimension to it. As we learn to notice the stillness in dynamic movements and the strong flow of energy in still postures, we can apply these different energies to (re)balance ourselves. Working with specific - and often neglected - body parts, such as the ankles, soles of the feet, the face and the eyes, will result in subtle changes in your body. Pranayama and Mindfulness Meditation exercises will further assist you in this exploration of balancing movement and stillness. Mostly experiential in nature, this workshop will allow you to dive deeply within and experience a renewed connection with your body.

During this workshop you will explore and learn:

  • the concepts of Yin and Yang;
  • the subtlety of dynamic movements and passive postures;
  • yoga for specific body parts, such as the ankles, shoulders, eyes and face;
  • both energizing and calming Pranayama;
  • Mindfulness Meditation.
  • This workshop is open to students of all levels.
