Then we will explore some therapeutic partner and group counterbalances and stretches, and how they can transition to synchronized movements. Beginners welcome.
arm balance workshop
To find the strength through your palms, notice where the energy goes and how it functions in the arms. If so, we can stand with our legs balanced and our mobility is varied then we shall have more spacial movement with our arms. However have we thought about the reason why we can’t achieve this? In these 2 hours let’s just put down whatever is on our mind, flow with Diana, and have a fun time.
It generally works on our fascia, ligament and joints. We need to carry three principles (Tattvas), during in this practice: stillness, time and appropriate depth to be required. Each posture we design to hold 3 to 5min, remaining our body however we can stay. Ideally is to open our physical body, however it also does all aspects of ourselves emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Bhakti, on the other hand, is to release the yin energy, devoting our love and feeling to beloved ones.

SUNRISE GENTLE FLOW + MEDITATION
Through the flow of breaths, we will connect a series of simple asana into movements, gently opening up the body to embrace the sunrise. The session will end with mindful meditation.
yin yang yoga
First comes the vigorous yang asana, deepening the stretch and strengthening the muscles while focusing on the quality of each breath. Followed by the long hold in yin asana, stimulating the meridians of inner organs, allowing the balance flow of chi.
We will stay in each asana for 3-5 minutes. The yin practice strengthens the ligaments, stimulates the meridians of inner organs, and balances the flow of chi. During the stay in the asanas, we will observe the changes in our body, the ups and downs of emotions, and our train of thoughts with mindfulness. This is to practice to be here and now.運用長時間的停留在體位法的方式，陰瑜珈強化身體的軟組織，打開內臟經絡，思ࠊ情緒ࠊ同時，在停留的當下，運用呼吸的陪伴，觀察身體ࠋ平衡氣的循環ࠋ緒的變化起伏
