Yin and Yang Yoga

Returning to the Source of Being
with Paulie Zink the founder of Yin Yoga
October 17-18, 2020

Taoist Yoga is an earth-honoring tradition from ancient China that follows the way of simplicity. In this workshop, suitable for people with all levels of yoga experience, we learn how to free ourselves from the constraints of the thinking mind, grow the body supple, flow with movement, and be in harmony with our own Tao, or way of being.
We explore special yoga postures that invoke the spiritual essence of various creatures and activate the yin and yang properties of the five alchemical elements used in Chinese medicine (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water), thus enlivening the body and consciousness with these energetic qualities.
Through this process of renewal, we balance our emotions, restore bodily systems, clear energetic obstructions, increase vitality, and enhance self-awareness. By returning to our true state of being, we awaken to our primal power and wild, playful spirit.
