Yin Yoga & Reiki
Deep connection, gentle touch

With José de Groot & Jordi Ibern


Treat yourself on an immersion of wellbeing and a deep, personal experience with the union of Yin Yoga & Reiki.

The subtle energy of Yin Yoga and the healing power of Reiki is a mutually reinforcing cooperation of therapeutic work for the benefit of your physical, mental or emotional health. Each workshop has a specific purpose: working on the elements of the Chinese Medicine (water, wood, fire, earth, metal) and its corresponding emotions, organs, meridians, ailments and specific physical areas.

Both sessions will begin with a short theoretical explanation of the elements, and their symptoms of harmony and disharmony. Then we continue with the practice which consists of a guided meditation to generate Reiki, followed by a specific sequence of Yin Yoga postures with the application of Reiki. To enjoy the deep energetic and emotional effects to the fullest you release everything in a well-deserved relaxation at the end.

On Saturday morning (10.00 – 13.00) you will during 3 hours, unblock, harmonize and balance the Chi (energy) of the Lungs & Large Intestine (Metal element) and Heart & Small Intestine (Fire element). Making you feel more energetic, decisive and loving, with less confusion and doubts. On a physical level you will be opening and twisting the torso to enhance the circulation and detoxification of the organs, stretching the arms and hands and lastly releasing tension in the shoulders and upper back.

On Saturday afternoon (14.00-17.00) you will during 3 hours, unblock, harmonize and balance the Chi (energy) of the Kidneys & Urinay Bladder (Water element), the Liver & Gall Bladder (Wood element) and the Stomach & Spleen (Earth element). Making you feel more calm in the mind, brave and self-confident, with less toxins in your body. On a physical level you will be opening and twisting the torso and stimulating the digestion. Furthermore  you will be stimulating and lengthening the connective tissues (ligaments, tendons and fascia) of your whole back, the lateral side of your body, hips and legs (groins, quadriceps and hamstrings).
