Yin & Yang Yoga Retreat: Creating the Balance Between Surrender & Action
September 12th to 18th, 2022
Our Yoga Retreat Bali offers the perfect counterbalance to modern busy lives, on a paradise Bali island, the perfect setting for real YOU time.
Offering space to unwind habitual patterns & take real time out for the business of life. Our yin practices involve holding positions that stress & renew the deep, dense connective tissues. The method includes using many variations & props within the postures to relax within the target area as we hold the pose for extended periods. Within this stillness, we can then become receptive & reflective to what is happening, within & around the body, while also noticing our reactions & responses.
Yang styles of yoga are more dynamic, where we target the muscles, & often employ repetitive movements to stretch the muscles. Muscles love to get warm; they are elastic & moist, so they appreciate this form of exercise & respond well to it. Rather than emphasizing surrender, our Yang practices promote action. By creating heat within the body, these styles increase blood flow, our circulation, and build strength, stamina, & flexibility while helping you learn patience & endurance.
If we constantly push our lives forward & lead a very yang life, we can burn our energy rather than conserve it. On the other hand, if we overtly draw inwards, this can lead to a sedentary lifestyle; we can move away from being present & fall into the past. An overbalance of yin or yang can create disharmonies. They need to co-exist for our lives to be in balance.
We can often lose our sensitivity to the body’s signals, focusing on achieving results rather than feeling. By exploring the contrast between the strength & power of a yang practice and the grace & surrender within a yin practice, you will learn how to implement a mixture of Yin & Yang practices throughout your yoga schedule & practice the essence of self-care, as you learn to listen to your body & respond with loving compassion.
