“Balance is not something you find. It is something you create.” Jana Kingsford

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a combination of classical Indian Yoga, Chinese philosophy, Daoist principles & Western science. A class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses. By stretching and deepening into poses, blockages of Qi (life force energy) in the Meridians (energy channels) are released allowing the energy to flow freely again.

Yin Yoga targets the deep connective tissues and is quite meditative. In holding the poses for a longer period of time rarely-used tissues can be reached, you are given space to turn inwards and heighten the awareness of any sensations in the physical & energetical body. Stored emotions, tensions & stress can be released during this practice while it also supports the process of to breathing through discomfort and staying present in stillness.

Yin Yoga helps to practice awareness, surrender & mindfulness.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine is an ancient health science based on the belief that the body can heal itself. TCM thinks holistically, health is seen as a balance on all levels. It combines herbs, nutrition, body movement, body therapy and Accupuncture to bring the system back into a healthy balance.

TCM understands that every person needs individual treatment tailored to their needs, diversity and uniqueness. There is no template thinking. Health means living according to one’s own nature in harmony with the environment: an inner balance that is reflected on the outside.The TCM system is designed for immediate and practical use in everyday life.

The meridian system forms the basis for this. The 12 main meridians not only affect us on a physical level, they also describe the different principles and levels in life. These need to be harmonized in order to live healthily. We can use the meridian system to gain insights regarding our health and well-being, allowing us to take responsibility for our lives and make the changes needed.
