Yin Meets Yang: Cultivating Strength, Mobility and Ease
March 06 –

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.

Doing the YogaWorks teacher training in Hawaii with Alicia and Oliver was one of the most powerful experiences of my life. It went beyond my expectations. The YogaWorks program is complete and very well structured, but for me the deepest dimension of this training comes from the fact that Alicia and Oliver invite their students to a deep self-inquiry. They create a safe, supportive and loving space for their students to grow. The residential program can be challenging – strong Asana practice every morning followed by a day of study and homework, but the full immersion in the yogic way of life is a transformative experience. And Alicia and Oliver know how to release the pressure and bring a sense of humor and a light touch to the whole experience. They are masters in the art of holding the space and creating a meditative and peaceful mood. Their knowledge in yoga and the art of teaching it is very profound: precise alignments, very well-rounded sequences, understanding and embodying the Yoga philosophy, emphasis on safety, nice voice… Not to mention the amazing land of Hawaii that brings a taste of heaven and magic to the experience and the wonderful friends made. I have no words to express my gratitude and love..
