4-Week Curriculum

Yin YangWeek one: A full-body Yin sequence will be accompanied by the nature of yin and yang, their non-binary relationship and constant (re)generation, their emergence from the Dao, and what the heck the Dao actually is. (Spoiler alert:  It can’t be known, only approached….)

Week two: Focusing on poses that illuminate the spine we will begin our exploration of the five phases (or elements) by feeling into the yin and yang of Water, and introduce the channels of the body through which the qi flows.

Week three: A sequence dedicated to the hips and legs where water gives birth to Wood. We’ll discuss the yin and yang of Wood this week, and deepen our understanding of yang-within-yin and yin-within-yang.

Week four: A deep practice for the shoulders, arms, and wrists.  Wood feeds Fire, and the diverse physiology of Fire is considered sovereign in the body. Fire controls Metal, the phase associated with autumn, and we’ll conclude our journey by discussing seasonal foods and practices to support the flourishing of yin as winter approaches.

 

Jennifer practices classical Chinese acupuncture and herbal medicine, which places special emphasis on harmonizing the systems of the body, not only with each other but also with the rhythms of nature. In addition to having graduated with highest honors from a four-year medical program at the National University of Natural Medicine, Jennifer has advanced training in classical needling techniques, pulse diagnosis, and Chinese herbal medicine; has completed a 2-year intensive apprenticeship in medical qigong therapies; and has studied ancient and modern sound healing techniques from around the world.

Mikhayla first discovered Yin Yoga in Albuquerque, NM. through a weekend workshop led by Joe Barnett. The practice of Yin continues to ground, settle, and help Mikhayla and her students relax into their deeper selves. In our fast-paced world it is refreshing to have an approach to yoga that has no goal. Yin fascinates Mikhayla because of its link to traditional Eastern spiritual traditions like Daoism and Confucianism. As Mikhayla offers Yin Yoga classes tailored to students who are ready to fully enjoy the depth and breadth of the postures.
