What is Yin Yoga?

Yin Yoga is a guided practice of floor postures that are held for a few minutes to access safe and positive “stress” on the deeper layers of connective tissue. Yin Yoga, based of the Traditional Chinese Medicine model, works to open the meridian energy channels throughout the body and create more balance while releasing blocked energy.   

 

What is Reiki energy healing?

Rei is translated as Universal and Ki is translated as lifeforce. Reiki is Universal Life Force Energy. The Reiki practitioner acts as a channel and conduit for Reiki to flow through so that the recipient will receive healing to whatever part of the body that needs it the most.   Reiki is used to heal physical and emotional pain by sending loving energy to parts of the body where there is a physical or emotional blockage.

 

What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra, also translated as “yogic sleep,” is a guided meditation and relaxation tool to heal and restore the body on a physical and subconscious level.  The practitioner simply lies is Savasana and listens to the instructions.  Yoga Nidra allows the practitioner to access deeper levels of the subconscious thus, healing emotional trauma.  This dream-like state with subtle awareness helps the body to relax completely and can rejuvenate the mind in such a way that is equivalent to 4 hours of sleep.

Introduction to Yin Yoga- Part 1
Saturday, Nov. 2nd @ 1pm
ZHY SOUTH
YIN YOGA Part 1: INTRODUCTION TO YIN YOGA
with MUNING

This workshop is broken up into two parts: students can sign up for Part I or II individually or both Part I & II.
 
A happy and peaceful life starts with balance. Throughout our everyday lives, many of us face both stress and busy lifestyles. These chaotic, pushing and achieving aspects of life (or “Yang”) call for calming, accepting, and surrendering aspects (or "Yin”) to achieve balance.
 
Part 1 of this 2-part series will introduce you the fundamentals and principles of Yin Philosophy and Yin yoga. This workshop teaches you how to apply Yin Yoga to balance your life and yoga practice.
 
Yin Yoga is a beautiful and complex practice of long, passively held poses originally from traditional Hatha Yoga. This Yin approach of yoga is deeply nourishing and has myriad benefits for any yoga practitioner. Yin yoga targets entirely different parts of the body, and it marries meditation and asana into very deep practice.
 
On a physical level, Yin yoga enhances the natural range of motion in the joints. By keeping your muscles soft, you focus on the deeper layers of the body, releasing the connective tissues along meridians. On an energetic level, Yin yoga enhances the flow of Qi (life force) in the tissues around the joints, where energy often stagnates. Then there are also the mental benefits. By holding poses for three to five minutes, discomforts often arise. Yin yoga conditions you to stay with the intense sensations, rather than quickly moving into the next pose. Yin Yoga trains you to become more comfortable with discomfort instead of becoming alarmed. This workshop is followed by a full Yin Yoga practice.
 
Pricing per person:
PART 1: $50
PART 2: $50
PART 1 & 2: $90

Intro to Vinyasa
Saturday, Nov. 9th @ 1pm
ZHY SOUTH
INTRO TO VINYASA
with SUSAN

If you are new to the practice, tend to stick to warm/hot yoga classes, and shy away from Vinyasa Yoga classes because you're not sure what that word even means or it seems intimidating, then we have something for you!!!!

Introducing the INTRO TO VINYASA WORKSHOP with Susan!

 

What you will learn:
• What Vinyasa means
• Victory (Ujayi) breath, the foundational method of breathing in all Vinyasa yoga
• Step by step breakdown of each pose that makes up the Vinyasa flow
• Introduction to Sun Salutations A & B with modifications for your body
• Sanskrit Translations
• Proper Structural Anatomy of the body
• Proper Alignment for YOUR Body
• Injury Prevention for Happy, Healthy, Yoga Practice

Vinyasa flows can be challenging at first for those new to the practice. In this workshop, Susan will be explaining the meaning of "Vinyasa", breaking down Sun Salutations A & B, Vinyasa Flow, and other common sequences or 'chains' of postures that are in most yoga classes. In a typical Vinyasa class, these sequences are much more frequently offered throughout, with an emphasis on the transitions between the poses as well.

Often the pace of a Vinyasa class does not allow us to have the time to explore each pose and the transition between the poses. This workshop will set the groundwork to help you flow with more ease, grace, strength, confidence, and safety.

 

Learn the key fundamentals of alignment that is essential to your Vinyasa yoga practice. In this workshop, Susan will break down the correct alignment necessary for the 4 key poses most frequently used in Vinyasa: plank, chaturanga, upward facing dog, and downward-facing dog. This workshop will help you set the groundwork for a safe and long yoga practice. We will work in-depth on variations of “taking a vinyasa” for each student's individual level.

Yoga for Veterans Initiative
Ongoing
YOGA FOR VETS INITIATIVE

 

This will be ongoing for any new active duty or Veteran to Zen Hot Yoga.

You can receive your first 4 classes for FREE (to be used in 30 days).

 

Yoga has proven to be beneficial to our military and veterans for many reasons including anxiety and PTSD.  Yoga is a great alternative to other drugs and therapy and can calm the nervous system and help heal physical and emotional trauma.  One of the most important things for veterans, and for human beings in general, is to find a group of people or a community who support and understand them. Practicing yoga with other veterans can be a great opportunity to bond and share a calm – and even spiritual – connection. 

 

Over 20 Veterans a day commit suicide.  We want to be a safe place for healing and connection.  We hope you will take advantage of this offering. 

If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, please reach out for help.

Yin Yoga PART 2: Meridian Theory & Acupressure Points 
Saturday, Dec. 7th @ 1pm
ZHY SOUTH
YIN YOGA Part 2: INTRO  TO MERIDIAN THEORY & ACUPRESSURE POINTS with MUNING

This workshop is broken up into two parts: students can sign up for Part I or II individually or both Part I & II.
 
When the western body meets the eastern mind, we may be able to understand the natural laws and universal order just a bit differently and intuitively. What are meridians and their functions in the body? Can we feel, see or touch meridians? By understanding the brief surface level of meridian theory, we can apply certain techniques and focus on particular areas of the body in our yoga practice to bring the maximum harmony to the body and achieve balance.
 
We will introduce very basic acupressure points and how to use these points to enhance the art of self-healing. The workshop includes a full Yin Yoga practice with Acupressure point application.
 
Pricing:
Per person (PART 1): $50
Per person (PART 2): $50
Part 1 & 2 together: $90
