Yin Yoga & Myofascial Release Workshop (auf Englisch)
mit Michael
am Samstag 22. September, 2018 von 13:00-16:00 Uhr

Kosten: 35 Euro


This workshop begins with a brief introduction and session in Myofascial Release using balls. This is self practice designed to release the stuck or restricted spots in the body. Followed by a deep Yin practice to support the Myofascial Release sequence.

What is Myofascial Release:

MFR has the ability to release more deeply trapped or blocked structures along the meridian lines.
In MFR, a gentle, sustained pressure is applied to points of restriction (those bunched up spots), allowing the connective tissue to release. Picture a stick of cold butter. If you jab your finger into it sharply, you’re just going to hurt your finger, and not even make a dent in the butter. But if you place your finger on the butter, and apply gentle pressure, you’ll find you’re able to slowly sink into the stick of butter, melting your way into it. This is essentially what is happening when one performs Self Myofascial Release (SMFR) with Myofascial Release tools such as rollers and balls. 

What is Yin Yoga:

Yin is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time—for beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more.

Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence.

The meridian lines and myofascial lines essentially are the same pathways.

Together they are a powerful approach to restoring mobility, flexibility and vitality to the body. 

The workshop has 75min Myofascial Release where we work through the back, neck, hips and shoulders using balls and bodyweight to apply direct pressure along the meridian lines, Followed by a deep Yin Yoga practice to further release trapped spots in the body.

All levels are welcome.
