Yin Yoga Immersion
2,5 hour Yin Yoga Immersion with Joe Barnett
We are happy to present these two 2,5 hour yin yoga immersions. The immersions invite you to explore your body and yin yoga with Joe Barnett.
16 January 18.30 - 21.00:
Upper Body Yin: A Yin Yoga practice designed for the shoulders and neck.
Typically Yin Yoga targets the hips and low back where the bulk of restrictive connective tissue is most densely gathered. However, some Yogis find great relief after settling into a Yin effort of quiet surrender into the shoulders and neck area.
Joe will guide you through a balanced effort between the lower and upper body, offering throughout a variety of options to explore. The goal in this class is to realize the similarities and differences in how a Yogi should approach these very different target areas.

The Rebound: An Exit Strategy
The most challenging part of a Yin Yoga Posture is coming out of it. The most powerful part of the practice is the quiet space between poses: observing the vibrations that ripple through the body. From physical sensations through emotional fluctuations and thought patterns, this study will reveal the science and philosophy of the power of Savasana (Corpse Pose) and The Rebound.
Joe Barnett, ERYT-500, based loosely in both Cincinnati, OH and Tucson, AZ, has been teaching for 14 years. He travels nationally and internationally year round offering presentations and trainings on Yin and Yang (Vinyasa) forms of Yoga.
He provides a deep study (both experiential and anatomical) of the crude physical Skeleton and Fascia, as well as the more subtle Meridians and Chakras. Joe is a senior student and primary teaching assistant of Paul Grilley, a true Yoga Scientist and founder of Yin Yoga. After several years of apprenticing under Paul, Joe began roaming the globe to spread the word of his teacher’s work: 1) Yin Yoga, 2) a Functional Analysis of the Skeleton, and 3) Chakra Meditation. Naturally he began training yoga teachers across the world how to begin using these practical models to help others find a quiet practice of surrender.
