Yin Yoga with Victor Chng
DAY ONE: Friday, 1 May 2020, 2-4pm
Introduction to Yin Yoga: Demystify the way to stay young & healthy
The Chinese believe in the idea of longevity and it is based on being in harmony with the universe (天人合一). This is an ancient Chinese idea known as “Dao”. Dao means “the way” or “being on the path”. It is a state of perfect balance that requires no alteration. The whole universe manages itself by being in this state. In the ancient Chinese medical text, ‘The Yellow Emperor Inner Classics’, it states “…men who knows the Dao, follows the principle of Yin-Yang, harmonise with numerology, eats according to season, lives within a health routine, do not exert themselves unnecessarily, so that the body and mind can remain integrated”.
In this workshop, Victor will discuss the key ideas in ‘The Yellow Emperor Inner Classics’ to help us understand the nature of life and how slow down aging. Key highlights include:
— Exploring the Highest Potential of Life in Nature
— Yin Yoga Basic Poses, Alignment & Adjustment according to Chinese Meridian Theory
— Understanding Aging and Defying Aging
DAY TWO: Saturday, 2 May 2020, 2-4pm
Generating the Qi-body
Qi or Prana (in Indian yoga), is the key in all human movement. This workshop begins with meridian opening sequences and a short standing sequence to ground the energy. When the body begins to ground the Qi, it will have more freedom in its flow and expansion. The practice targets all the Yang channels in the body.
