Yin Meets Yang: Cultivating Strength, Mobility and Ease
March 06 –
March 08, 2020
Yin and Yang forms of Yoga are often differentiated with respect to movement speed, targeted tissues, and the length of time poses are held. But, these ancient Chinese concepts are terms based on relativity that apply to all phenomenon, and in fact, can be applied to our movement practice in a number of creative ways to cultivate greater joint integrity and tissue balance.
Join international teacher trainer and Samdhana Yoga founder, Alicia Cheung, for her integral anatomy and movement series: “Yin Meets Yang: Cultivating Strength, Mobility and Ease”. She will take you on a journey to explore creative and challenging movement in less traditional ways to increase mindfulness, reduce common overuse injuries as seen in asana, enhance flexibility, active mobility, strength, neurological control, and ultimately, surrender.
Her lecture series will be based on the latest, evidence-based findings in movement research, functional anatomy, pain science and fascial health. You will develop new ways of improving joint integrity, neuromuscular function, reducing pain, and narrowing the gap between passive flexibility and active mobility, all of which will enhance your current asana practice. Open to practitioners wanting to deepen their practice, and for teachers, you will also cultivate a thinking process that will inspire creativity in your sequencing.
Dates: March 6-8, 2020
What struck me most about the yoga teacher training program I took with Alicia was how much it wasn’t what I thought it would be. It was way more than that. There is plenty of asana and sanskrit all that but the special bit is how Alicia helps you open and gives you the space to truly look within. And beyond the meditation and journaling and pranayama and mantras and asana and everything else, the magic is simply how Alicia holds the space for everyone on the journey letting them come to their own realizations. It’s a lot of work but intensely rewarding.And of course she’s a fantastic teacher. She’s tough and fair and giving and has the patience of saint. She truly cares about each one of her students and most importantly she’s fun! I couldn’t ask for more from a teacher and I’ll always remember her ever-present smile in my heart.
