Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Intensive

Stress-free MindSeptember 26 – 30, 2018
Delight Yoga, The Hague (NL)

In this Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Intensive you will learn to manage your thinking by applying Mindfulness practices, and specific Yin yoga sequences, to de-stress your mind and your body.

Stress is an experience of your mind that expresses itself in your body. The feeling of not being in control is the greatest cause of stress. The stressoris the situation, event or thought that you respond to and that causes stress. Your mind is the biggest contributor to the stress you experience, as our body reacts to our thoughts whether they are relating to a real situation, or not. When you learn to be more aware of what you are thinking (and why), you will cultivate more control over your mind, and will be better able to manage – and reduce – your stress levels.  In this Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Intensive you will learn to manage your thinking by applying Mindfulness practices, and to de-stress your body with specific Yin yoga sequences.

This Intensive is open to all levels. It is recommended, however, to have taken at least a few Yin Yoga classes prior to the start of this Intensive.

This Intensive will offer practice, and self-inquiry through writing and sharing in dyads.

This Intensive will include:

  • an exploration of the stress mechanism;
  • an investigation into the Five Hindrances – the mind states as identified in the Buddhist tradition – and how they affect our (in)ability to be in the present moment;
  • the practice of various breathing techniques to enhance a state of well-being and calmness; and
  • specific Yin yoga sequences as tools for a more relaxed body and mind.
