Yin yoga founder Paulie Zink is a multifaceted instructor of rare quality. He is a Chi Kung expert and an internationally acclaimed martial arts grand champion. The combination of his exceptional background, knowledge and skill makes him unique among yoga teachers in the western world. In order to achieve this degree of mastery he underwent demanding training and esoteric disciplines which emphasized cultivating the felt awareness and embodiment of one’s intuitive, instinctual, and mystical natures. As a result, he can actualize the power and spontaneity, the flowing movement and wild spirit that are inherent in our awakened primal energy. Paulie conveys a profound and refreshing simplicity that comes from true understanding. With his relaxed and playful demeanor, students find him to be a very approachable and enjoyable teacher. Paulie continues to evolve his art of Yin yoga by adding postures, variations, and insights. Through many years of study, practice and teaching he has further developed this ancient Taoist tradition into his own distinctive and dynamic style.

MORE ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

This workshop will be largely experiential with some short lectures. Students will engage in Yin Yoga postures of stillness for promoting growth, clearing energetic blockages, and enhancing circulation, Yang Yoga postures for developing core strength and muscle tone, balance, and stamina, and Taoist Flow Yoga. Taoist Flow includes both Yin and Yang yoga. It is more than just a sequence of postures. In Taoist Flow the process of transition from pose to pose is as much a part of the practice as the postures themselves. Taoist movement incorporates continuous, smooth and circular motion designed to develop fluidity and grace in the body and a relaxed confident demeanor.

Taoist yoga is an earth honoring tradition born out of the indigenous health practices and spiritual philosophies of ancient China. Taoist principles follow the way of simplicity and living in harmony with nature. In this all-levels workshop we learn to let go of concepts to free ourselves from the constraints of the thinking mind, grow the body supple, flow with movement, and be in harmony with our own Tao, or way of being.

We explore specific yoga postures that activate the vital properties of the five alchemical elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water) and invoke the spiritual essence of various creatures, thus enlivening the body and consciousness with these distinct energetic qualities, such as lightness, fluidity, strength, springiness, and calm.

Through this process of renewal we balance emotions, restore bodily systems, clear energetic obstructions, increase vitality, and enhance self-awareness. By returning to our true state of being we awaken to our primal power and playful spirit.

TOPICS COVERED INCLUDE:

How to endow the body with the energetic properties of the five elements.Maintaining health and balance of emotions and the internal organs.Unlocking the joints and clearing toxins.The circulating breath cycle and the flow of energy throughout the body.Relaxing the thinking mind and learning to feel with the intuitive heart.Meditations for grounding and relaxation.Visualizations for developing flexibility and deepening your personal practice.
