Yin Yang AcuPressure Workshop with Bianca Chan

History
Chinese philosophy believes in 2 principles, one is negative – feminine and dark (Yin) and the opposite is positive – masculine and bright (Yang). Yin represents passive and Yang symbolises active, both principles existing in all forms of change and difference such as the annual cycle (winter and summer), genders (female and male), and sociopolitical history (disorder and order).
Yin - Feminine / Soft / Passive / Water / Night / Cold
Yang - Masculine / Hard / Active / Sun / Day / Hot

AcuPressure
A form of alternative therapy in which manual pressure from the fingers is used to stimulate specific points on the body, based on the concept of life energy that flows through "meridians" in the body with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory for the selection of such points and their effectiveness is that they work by stimulating the 12 meridian groups to bring about relief by re-balancing the Yin, Yang and Chi.

Meridians
Themeridian system, also called channel, is a concept in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) about a path through which the life-energy known as ‘Chi’ / Prana flows. It connects all major organ systems. Each meridian plays a specific role in the health of the entire body.

The12 meridians are divided into Yin and Yang groups:
Arm (Yin) - Lungs / Heart / Pericardium
Arm (Yang) - Large Intestine / Small Intestine / Triple Burner
Leg (Yin) - Spleen / Kidney / Liver
Leg (Yang) – Stomach / Bladder / Gall Bladder

What is Yin Yang Yoga
Yin Yang Yoga blends two styles ofyoga into one practice – the muscles, blood and skin are referred to as the ‘Yang’ tissues while the ligaments, bones and joints are termed the ‘Yin’ tissues. It brings together the benefits of passively holding poses for a longer time to work on deep, dense connective tissues and joints in the body (Yin) together with more dynamic flows and standing postures (Yang). More importantly, it slows down degeneration through ‘Yin’ stretching and ‘Yang’s rhythmic movement of Vinyasa Flow in order to open up the ‘Chi’ / Prana.


Benefits of Practising Yin Yang yoga
1. Yin increases your flexibility
Yin yoga stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility as the poses stretch and exercise the bone and joints.

2. Melts stress away
Doing yin stretches with plenty of time to do nothing and just breathe is a perfect way to slow your mind down and to be guided deeper into your poses.

3. Meditation
In Yin practice, you will find yourself staying still quite often with long deep breaths and a still mind - the ideal beginning to a gentle meditation.

4. Yang increases strength
Yang practice actively works on the muscles and blood flow, building strength, stamina and flexibility.

Through the workshop, you will learn:
1. How Yin poses work with AcuPressure points through the major meridians
to release joint tension, muscle pain, headaches, etc.
2. How Yang poses to activate your Chi / Prana
3. A few basic massage methods for head, face, shoulders and back
4. An introduction to Chinese Traditional Healing Treatment – ‘Moxibustion’
