I have been very fascinated by Chinese Medicine, and the Meridians, since the first time I experienced the way it worked, with my own body. Yin yoga is not only a meditation practice, but it is also a way to stimulate your meridians, in positive ways. I am very much into real nutrition, real whole food, and understanding how the human body works, especially after curing myself of Epilepsy.
Daoist yoga, or Yin, gives me the opportunity, in sitting quietly, within myself, and connecting with those deeper places, that lie within my body/mind/spirit, the deep connective tissues. I started out in yoga with Ashtanga, Bikram due to them being so similar to the sports I have always been into and competed in, until my first Daoist yoga class, in my teacher training, and I was hooked.
I am a very avid outdoors gal whom loves to rock climb, run and ride bikes. My family and I have lived in the Asheville area for 18 years, and we reside in Marshall, up in the mountains, with our small family farm, 2 kids, a Jersey cow, chickens, and a kitty cat, and a bike shop, in downtown Marshall.
Yin Yoga (All Levels)
Tuesdays from 4:00 to 5:15 pm
Energetically, Yin Yoga opens the body’s meridian system, which enhances the body’s energetic flow and supports emotional equilibrium. It targets the deep connective tissue, such as ligaments and fascia. It emphasizes stillness and silence, and prepares both the body and the mind for a deeper experience in meditation. Most poses are done while seated or lying down and are held in stillness for 3-5 minutes.
