Jeny Dawson instructs the following:
Yin Yoga with Sound Healing
This unique class combines the vibrational healing properties of such instruments as crystal singing bowls, gongs, and tuning forks with the slow and meditative yin yoga practice.
Why combine the two?
As yin yoga moves deep into the connective tissue, the vibrational instruments aid in the opening of the body and releasing energetic blockages that we often store deep within.
Yin Yoga with Reiki
Yin yoga promotes stillness in the body and mind. While most forms of yoga focus on the muscles, yin yoga is meant for the joints, the connective tissue called facia, and has many benefits for the body. It is a great compliment to more rigorous forms of exercise as it opens the body and stimulates our connective tissue.
Yin class is composed of all seated or reclined poses that are held anywhere from 2-7 minutes each. While in each pose Reiki, energy healing, will be administered. Reiki is a Japanese technique where the hands are placed on or over the body moving life force energy to assist stress reduction, relaxation, healing, and happiness.
