50 HR YIN YOGA IMMERSION

This immersion qualifies for 50 YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program) hours. With homework and online study it qualifies for 100 YACEP hours total.

Embodied Flow™ Yin Yoga is a gentle, integrative practice that creates a sacred space where time expands and slows down, allowing you to find your deepest sense of self. This approach combines a unique blend of yin poses, guided imagery, experiential anatomy, movement meditation, five elements of Chinese medicine, breath work, mantra and mind-body medicine practices.

Embodied Flow™ Yin Yoga recognizes that the way we care for ourselves, others, and the environment is interrelated. Through developing awareness and loving kindness on and off the mat, we gain a felt sense of this “interrelatedness” (yoga) and can become a more fully inhabited embodied being. In this tradition, becoming embodied is a process of returning to our innate sense of well-being where the richness and subtleties of life are deeply experienced. In this way, a life fully felt is a live fully lived.
