If you've been loving our Soul Space classes and want to delve in a little deeper, join Bianca for a special Meridian Deep Relaxation and Yin Yoga Practice.
In Chinese medicine the channels that conduct energy throughout the body are called meridians. These form a pathway around the body. If blockages occur within the meridian lines the body will not function properly, organs will not perform their functions and imbalances can arise.
These blockages and imbalances can be created by excessive mental or physical activity, excess of processed or fatty foods, being exposed to extreme weather conditions, lack of sleep or exercise and most importantly ‘Me Time’.
Symptoms that may arise from these can be insomnia, depression/sadness, anger, excessive weight gain, loss of voice, dry cough, cloudy thinking, headaches, PMS, muscle spasms, poor circulation, low sex drive, constipation and immunity issues just to name a few.
Within this workshop we will co-ordinate the yin yoga around clearing the energy also known as Chi blockages throughout our meridian lines.
In each pose I will discuss the meridian line we are clearing, where its located and the element that each line is related too. Information about symptoms or causes will be deeply discussed while intentionally stressing the target area.
To embed this knowledge, we will finish with a Meridian Nidra, a guided meridian cleansing meditation to help rid the impurities through our meridian lines.
Yin & Yang are different aspects of yoga you cannot have one without the other. Yin parts of the body are usually referred to as connective tissues being tendons, ligaments and fascia while the more pliable areas of the body being muscle and blood are more yang. When you look at different styles of yoga your stronger more muscle involvement yoga is yang and then your releasing longer holds can be more yin.
Yin yoga usually consists of long held passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body, hips , pelvis, inner thigh and lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues.
