Master class: Yin Yoga & Meridians focus (Kidneys & Liver) 
with José de Haan – de Groot

 

 

Discover the healing effects of Yin yoga, through stimulating specific meridians.

 

In this three-hour Master class, you will enjoy a deep body stretch in which you stimulate four organs and meridians belonging to the two elements Water and Wood of the Chinese Medicine. You will stay 5 to 10 minutes in the poses in order to increase the healing effect on the physical, mental and emotional level.

 

We begin with a long, partly-guided meditation, in which you become aware of the aspects that belong to the elements wood and water; thoughts, emotional state and physical sensations. Afterwards you will practice pranayama, which balances the two elements. By stimulating the four meridians – Kidneys & Urinary Bladder and Liver & Gall Bladder – during the yin practice you will open up your back and hips, you will release tensions on the lateral sides of your body, you will twist your torso to stimulate the circulation and you will increase the external rotation and flexibility of the hamstrings. Likewise, you will get the opportunity to pay attention to the tightest areas of the body, to be able to balance the left and right sides.

 

The poses can trigger intense effects, and if this occurs, José will be there to guide you, enabling you to get to the core of whatever may appear, and providing greater insight into your entire being. The practice will finish with the energetic effects of a well-deserved, extended period of relaxation. The Master  class will conclude with meditation and pranayama, allowing anything that may have come up to settle without judgement.

 

Let go of all your fears and irritations to enjoy whatever will be revealed to you.
