Yin Yang with Sara Ivanhoe

Saturday, March 5th | 10am – 12pm

Most of us are looking for balance in our lives, but we don’t know how to get it, or why we fell out of balance in the first place. The Taoists teach us about two opposing energies called “yin” or in-flowing energy and “yang” out-flowing energy. The “yang” energy is how we are out in the world, our power, how we get things done. The “yin” energy is our internal world, our relationship to ourselves, our ability to get quiet and receive. These energies need to be in an even flow for us to feel energized and relaxed at the same time. In this two hour practice, we will divide our time evenly between these two forces. Through a vinyasa flow sequence, we will create a yong energy to heat and purify the body from toxins, tension and stress. This time is designed to burn off impurities, to literally melt away the tension and stress that resides in the pockets of the body. The second half of the practice will take the open cleansed body through long hip openers, restorative postures, pranayama and meditation. This process will rejuvenate the body leaving you feeling peaceful, passionate and playful! The “Tao Te Ching”, teaches us that a life in balance is possible for everyone. We just need to take a moment out of our busy schedules to find what has always been ours.
