Introduction to Yin Yoga
with Biff Mithoefer, E-RYT 500
October 26 - 28, 2018
Guided by Biff Mithoefer, author of The Yin Yoga Kit, you will practice Yin Yoga to bring health to your body and balance to your busy, Yang-style life. Yin Yoga uses long-held postures that support you in accessing the deeper, more Yin parts of yourself.
Explore how this ancient yogic practice can promote the flow of prana (life) through the meridians (energy channels) of your deep Yin core.
Learn how to incorporate Yin postures and philosophy into any Yoga practice by:
- Applying Taoist philosophy
- Following the movement of prana (life energy) in the body and explore how to affect it with Yin Yoga
- Gaining a basic understanding of the Chinese meridian system and its relationship to yogic chakra theory
- Exploring basic anatomical differences that ultimately affect Yoga postures
- Balancing the Yin practices with more Yang-style practices, based on Hatha Yoga and the Taoist tradition

Biff was wonderful. The music and chanting were very enjoyable.
I had never studied Yin Yoga and I found the class very informative, compassionate, and personally beneficial.
I admire the facilitator and love the environment.
Biff was amazingly approachable, funny, human and connected.
