Power of Yin

  • Whangarei Heads Yoga Retreat 16 Reotahi Road Whangarei Heads, Northland, 0174 New Zealand (map)

This 7 day retreat touches all levels helping us anchor into our individual nature as a unique expression of ONE universal power. In Chinese medicine that ONE power is viewed as the two complementary energies of Yin and Yang. Yin power is like the Earth; substantial, grounded and contracted. It is a receptive, magnetic feminine energy relative to Yang which is masculine, active, stimulating, and outgoing

Opening and letting go

Opening to Yin power gives us access to our deep, hidden reservoirs of energy. Letting down and letting in offers us the direct experience of original source energy. On this retreat we awaken to Yin as the feminine, gathering, harmonising, cohesive power of life itself. Using restorative Yoga, meridian based breath and movement practices we activate the nurturing, grounding Mother energy helping to balance the blood and fluid production, regulation and circulation.
