We Will Explore
IT'S ALL RELATIVE
Yin & yang as a map of relativity. What makes something yin or yang? Where does that occur in the body mind. Where does that occur in nature. microcosm/macrocosm.
Learn and map the main meridians of the energy body according to TCM.
THE 5 PHASES
How does energy behave in a way that we might have observed in nature? with 5 element theory we can learn our unique constitution and how we might balance the individual in relation to the seasons.
Within the body map we have many different terrains. Explore muscles, organs, connective tissues, bones, fluids, cells. How these systems come together as a whole body community and which practices nourish which systems.
THE ART OF ATTENTION
Where attention goes Qi flows, how important is the intentionality of our practices - whether we are physically challenged or actively resting.
“By the time it came to the edge of the Forest the stream had grown up, so that it was almost a river, and, being grown-up, it did not run and jump and sparkle as it used to do when it was younger, but moved more slowly. For it knew now where it was going, and it said to itself, 'There is no hurry. We shall get there some day.'” -Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh
Maryanne first studied here at Sukha Mukha with Idit Hefer Tamir and also her teacher Jasmine Tarkeshi.
For her Yin studies she has been guided by Sarah Powers and most recently completed some further Yin training through the lense of Embodied Flow.
Although Vinyasa is an excellent container to develop body awareness and explore the ways in which we express. It has become a passion in recent years to facilitate the slowing down and turning inward through the longer held postures of Yin yoga. Maryanne believes both are valuable practices that do not need to exist exclusively.
