Inviting Stillness: A Practice of Yin Yoga and Meditation for the New Year with Terry Cockburn
Saturday, January 12, 2 – 4 PM
Honor the new year by inviting stillness, introspection and reflection, while setting a clear intention for the year ahead. Turn inward as you melt away tension and deeply held, stagnant energy in the physical and energetic body through the practice of Yin Yoga – a still and passive style of yoga, focusing on the stimulation of the connective tissue by holding postures in seated, reclined, or prone positions for 3-6 minutes. This deep, quiet practice creates an opportunity for stillness, and to be fully present and aware with what arises.
Terry Cockburn has been teaching yoga since 2006, and opened the doors to Freeport Yoga Company in Freeport, Maine in December of 2011. A marathon runner, mother to two boys (and one yellow dog), business owner, and outdoor adventure-seeker, she balances an active, yang lifestyle with time on the meditation cushion and a contemplative Yin Yoga practice. She has been published in Runner’s World and Trail Runner magazines on the subject of Yin Yoga for runners, and is a trainer in the Summers School of Yin Yoga, having worked extensively with Josh Summers for over a decade.
