Yin Yoga Workshop: Cosy Up To The Quiet
Hosted By : ASTITVA
There is a comfort in loudness. Busy traffic, loud music, message notifications, filled up schedules, content consumption, overdoing. We all feel kind of down and heavy after doing these things. But it’s hard to be quiet, to do nothing, to want to achieve less, to not run the race. But it’s also courageous. To try to meet ourselves, inside ourselves, between the version we show ourselves as or imagine ourselves to be and the version we are, the vulnerable us. This workshop is an attempt to create a space to be, to stay, to immerse and to value the quiet, to listen deeply into the silence that speaks so loud and into the loudness that speaks so little. A long juicy three hour session of yin drizzled with sweet spinal releases, creamy lower body loosening, long deep meditations to invite a fresh acceptance into how we see life, to get cosy in our warm blankets as we embrace and settle into a sleepy and fluffy quietness. This is an inclusive class that invites differences of all kinds.
What to expect:
A long introspective physical session that challenges the mind-body and evokes the soul.
Each one is going to have an individual experience where we begin to open our eyes to new possibilities and ways of life. A fruit bore by the potential of the individual’s mind, while on the other hand the body starts teaching us how to listen to it, it's movement, it's breath and teaches us how to connect to ourselves as we hold each shape at our own comfort.
A journey within and beyond.
A commitment to one self.
What To Expect:
This is also a beginner level workshop. So everyone is welcome to join in including senior citizens.

• An empty stomach! (Have at least a 2hr break in between your last meal and class time.)
• Wear comfortable/regular yoga clothes
