I began my practice with the discovery of Yin Yoga, and it has truly been the most WONDERFUL experience ever. For a beginning practitioner back then, it was the perfect way to discover and create spaces in my body and to understand what the practice of yoga can really do for one’s body, mind and spirit. Truly, I been so blessed to have found myself deeply in love with Yin  :)

This March, I hope you guys can also explore this beautiful practice with a series of Yin Yoga Workshops with my teacher and friend, Dona Tumacder-Esteban at Beyond Yoga.

Over the past year, I have come to realize the value of continuing my Yin practice, even though I have explored many other practices, from Hatha to Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hot Yoga, Bikram and even Antigravity Yoga. For me, I feel that keeping my Yin practice close to my heart allows me to go full circle in my practice. In a way, it really allows me to find a good balance between strength and flexibility, as well as movement and stillness. Essentially, as Dona always reminds me, it helps me find equanimity. The yin and the yang. Further, it is with my continued Yin practice that I am able to better understand my body more and go deeper into any practice I go into. Do check out the workshops or try out the regular Yin sessions Dona (and Monica) have at Beyond Yoga.
