The Practice of Being: Advanced Yin Training for Emotional Resilience

with Jenn Wooten and Fanny Priest
November 2 - 4
at Westlake

“Freedom is instantaneous the moment we accept things the way they are.”
-Karen Maezen Miller

When the circumstances of our daily life bring up feelings of discomfort--be they in the form of physical or energetic sensations, or unpleasant emotions--our habitual response tends to be, “I don’t want to feel that.” But not only does rejecting these sensations fail to bring us the peace we seek, it also cuts us off from large, valuable swaths of our human experience, and deprives us from the transformative potential of our discomfort.

The practice of Yin yoga--where passive poses are held close to the ground for several minutes--offers us a new way of being with the natural energy of life when it shows up in a form that we don’t like. By turning down the volume on the external distractions that fill our days, the practice of Yin yoga helps us tune in to our subtle and rich inner world, where we can learn to listen to, and dialogue with, our discomfort. And in so doing, we discover that whatever experience we are encountering in the moment is exactly what we need to help us wake up to ourselves and to our lives. By meeting the sensation as it is, and allowing ourselves to be as we are, we realize that leaning into the discomfort--rather than pushing it away--is what brings us the freedom that we so deeply desire.

In this advanced Yin training, experienced Yin students will refine their listening skills, hone their body’s own wisdom, and open to their discomfort as a means to developing emotional resilience. Through embodied experience, mindful discussion, and self-inquiry, students will learn new skills with which to encounter the natural energy of life, and how to integrate these skills into their daily rhythms so that this practice of being becomes their primary way to experience sensation.

This 12-hour training will cover the following topics:

  • The nature of pain and the human animal brain
  • The autonomous nervous system and yogic tools for self-regulation
  • How to reframe your experience of strong emotions as a key component of your humanity
  • How to create ease around discomfort by addressing your emotions through your bodily experience
  • Body sensing practice and dialoguing with sensation
  • Cultivating maitri (lovingkindness) and self-compassion
  • The importance of self-care and upholding healthy emotional boundaries
  • Practical tools to help you navigate the flow of daily emotions with equanimity

Prerequisite: 6 months of Yin yoga practice, completion of Foundations of Yin Yoga Training or permission from one of the instructors.


SCHEDULE:

Friday, November 2 - 6:30 - 8:30pm

Saturday, November 3 - 12:00 - 5:00pm

Sunday, November 4 - 12:00 - 5:00pm


Cost: $245 ($295 after September 2)
