Shanti Hot Yoga Live Interactive Yin Yoga with Mariam, Online, Monday, 20. July 2020
About this Event
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures that are held for longer periods of time- five minutes or longer typically- and stems from restorative yoga but differs in that poses are actively held to create space with effort. Yin poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues- the tendons, fascia, and ligaments- with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. The practice is also meant to improve the flow of qi, the subtle energy in Chinese medicine said to run through the meridian pathways of the body. Yin is beneficial as a complementary practice to balance the effects of more active forms of yoga (Yang). Yin is typically taught with calming music.

Check that you're in a room with enough space to practice, good internet, and consider headphones to better hear and concentrate on the experience.

Here is a little about your teacher Mariam:
My strength as a teacher lies in my understanding of the human condition. I do not have a traditional yogi physique, I know the frustrations of being limited within ones own body. I resonate with the struggle to meet yourself on the mat. My intention while teaching within that context, is to hold space for that experience. Through directed breath - through conscious movement - through repeated, guided compassion & patience - and through gentle reminders to just be where you are. My ultimate goal is bring you closer to yourself, closer to home. Because for me, that is yoga. RYT 200hr + 60hr Yin certified.
