An invitation to open up to the subtle layers, to the ripples of sound and stillness.
Nov 19, 2.30-6.30 pm
This immersion with Yoav & Alena is an invitation to exlore the qualities of yin – the absence of light, the inner realms & open up to receptivity.
We will combine meditation and yin yoga practices with sound and voice to carry you into the depth of stillness.
Yin yoga is a restorative practice that includes little to no movement in the postures, you are invited to find softness. It's a rather meditative practice that can help cultivate interoception and meet what's alive inside of you, connecting with your felt sense.
Weaving together a journey of live sounds, vibrations and embodiment practices, our intention is to explore deep listening as a full body experience.
From this place of presence and interoception, you will dive deeper into self-inquiry through journaling & mindful dialogue.
We will finish this 4-hour practice with a closing circle and invite you to join us for a potluck dinner by the fire.
Every body is welcome. No previous experience required.
