Yin Yoga Training with Martha Piersma


In depth study and advanced training with Martha Piersma, ERYT/200, RYT/500,YACEP and Yin Specialist.

Yoga as we practice it in the West is a dynamic, active practice designed to work only half of our body, the muscular half, the "yang" tissues. Our bodies need stability and strength. But as we age our flexibility diminishes and our vitality diminishes if we are not actively stressing our yin tissues. 

Yin Yoga is is a static way of being in yoga poses for longer periods in order to better nourish the deeper connective tissues and organs. It is a perfect opportunity to soften and cultivate your mental state as well, allowing the energy body to redistribute vitality throughout our system.
