SLOW and DEEP: YIN

As New Yokers we are notorious for walking fast, moving quick, and getting things done. In fact, we're experts. Often, the hardest thing for us to do is slow down. And I mean, take a pause, notice the breath, and BE with it, without needing to change or alter the present circumstance or outcome. It is when we slow down, though, that layers of our body armor soften and we are able to sink in to the depths of our true, authentic, real selves. In this YIN workshop, we will address the layers beneath the physical body by holding postures for an extended period of time to melt away tension and liberate the flow of qi that moves through the meridians of the subtle body.

Dharma Series Session 2: For Recovering Type A Personalities (A.K.A Every New Yorker)

You like your smoothie blended a particular way. Your laundry folded neatly. Peanut butter sandwiches cut in four perfect squares (no thank you, triangles). Trains to arrive on time. Your yoga class to involve your favorite pose but not a top-20 chart song. Okay, maybe just that J. Bieber song. Kidding.

But, really. You like things a certain, particular way. And perhaps you get a bit, let's say, ruffled if things go astray....

Type A Personalities...this one is for you. 

Join Be Shakti in this one hour discussion on the nature of the heart.
