Tending the Joints: An Introduction to Yin Yoga 1:00pm-3:30pm

Yin Yoga utilizes floor poses held for 3-5 minutes each in order to modestly, within limits, stimulate ligaments through tugging and compressing joint tissue. This basic introduction to Yin Yoga theory and its simple repertoire of poses is self-empowering for the support and physical therapy for the joints, tendons, and ligaments of the low back, spine, hips, sacrum, knees and ankles. In this workshop, the foundational principles of Yin Yoga will be discussed as well as the chemical responses that occur in the joints based on modern tissue regeneration research of why Yin Yoga is so uniquely therapeutic and rehabilitative to the joints.

Machelle is a certified and registered yoga instructor, massage therapist, and has earned a masters degree in mythology and depth psychology. Since 1991, Machelle has led therapeutic movement and hatha yoga demonstrating the complementary intersections of asana and Chinese meridian theory as a form of self-acupressure. In tending the physical body, Machelle weaves ancient yoga teachings with modern scientific research on the health and rehabilitation of muscle, connective tissues, and joints. In tending the psyche, she infuses storytelling, poetry, and modern psychology through Vinyasa and Yin Yoga practices in a creative and grounded approach to self development.
