YIN YOGA: THE ART OF LETTING GO WITH JOSH SUMMERS

YIN YOGA AND INSIGHT MEDITATION: THE ART OF LETTING GO  
WITH JOSH SUMMERS AT EMPOWER YOGA, BEVERLY

THIS MASTER CLASS WILL BE HELD AT EMPOWER YOGA
43 ENON STREET (ROUTE 1A)
BEVERLY, MA

SUNDAY, September 17
5:00 - 7:00
$35

“DO EVERYTHING WITH A MIND THAT LETS GO. DON’T ACCEPT PRAISE OR GAIN OR ANYTHING ELSE. IF YOU LET GO A LITTLE YOU A WILL HAVE A LITTLE PEACE; IF YOU LET GO A LOT YOU WILL HAVE A LOT OF PEACE; IF YOU LET GO COMPLETELY YOU WILL HAVE COMPLETE PEACE. ” 
― AJAHN CHAH

AS A PRACTICE CUE, “LET GO” RUNS THE RISK OF BEING ONE OF THE GREATEST SPIRITUAL CLICHÉS.  AND YET, WHEN FULLY UNDERSTOOD AND IMPLEMENTED WITH SKILL, “LETTING GO” ENCAPSULATES ONE OF THE GREATEST LESSONS ON THE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY. 

THIS WORKSHOP OF YIN YOGA AND INSIGHT MEDITATION WILL EXPLORE THREE ASPECTS OF “LETTING GO”:

1.    LETTING GO OF OUR TENDENCY TO INHABIT EITHER THE FUTURE OR PAST.

2.    LETTING GO OF OUR INCESSANT DEMANDS THAT THIS MOMENT BE ANYTHING OTHER THAN IT IS.

3.    LETTING GO, ULTIMATELY, OF THE SENSE OF SELF THAT TRIES SO HARD, PARADOXICALLY, TO LET GO. 

COME ENJOY THE PLEASURE AND PEACE OF LETTING GO!

YIN YOGA AND INSIGHT MEDITATION: FINDING THE MISSING PEACE

THE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY PROMISES A MOVEMENT FROM NOISE TO SILENCE, FROM AGITATION TO CALM, FROM COMPLEXITY TO SIMPLICITY. BUT, ULTIMATELY, IT IS OUR INNER ORIENTATION TO THAT JOURNEY, NOT THE PRACTICES THEMSELVES, THAT DETERMINES WHETHER OR NOT WE WILL REACH OUR DESTINATION.

WITHIN THE PRACTICES OF YIN YOGA AND BUDDHIST INSIGHT MEDITATION, JOSH WILL OFFER CLEAR GUIDANCE FOR DIRECTING ONE'S ATTENTION AND ENERGY TOWARDS THE SERENITY AND PEACE IN THE HERE AND NOW REGARDLESS OF THE CHAOS IN THE WORLD AROUND OR WITHIN YOU.

WHAT IS YIN YOGA?

YIN YOGA IS A COMPLEMENTARY YOGA PRACTICE TO MORE DYNAMIC AND ACTIVE YOGA STYLES. IN YIN YOGA, FLOOR POSTURES ARE HELD PASSIVELY FOR SEVERAL MINUTES IN ORDER TO ACCESS A SAFE AND POSITIVE ‘STRESS’ ON THE DEEPER LAYERS OF CONNECTIVE TISSUE IN THE BODY.

PHYSICALLY, YIN YOGA RESTORES AND MAINTAINS THE NATURAL MOBILITY OF THE JOINTS, PRIMARILY BETWEEN THE NAVEL AND THE KNEES. ENERGETICALLY, YIN YOGA OPENS THE BODY’S MERIDIAN SYSTEM, WHICH ENHANCES THE BODY’S ENERGETIC FLOW AND SUPPORTS EMOTIONAL EQUILIBRIUM.

YIN YOGA EMPHASIZES STILLNESS AND SILENCE. THE PRACTICE PREPARES BOTH THE BODY AND MIND FOR DEEPER EXPERIENCES IN MEDITATION.

Weekend Update | Friday, June 9th through Sunday, June 11th

"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. 
The fears are paper tigers.  You can do anything you decide to do. 
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure,
the process is its own reward."  Amelia Earhart
