Yin Yoga


This class is taught by:

Marianne Linn

Born and raised in Germany, Marianne discovered the seeds of yoga, meditation and bodywork while traveling extensively in Asia. She has been studying and practicing yoga and meditation for over 20 years. In 1994, she was certified with the Sivananda Vedanta Yoga Society in Austria and continued her studies in the Iyengar and Astanga Vinyasa traditions, completing the teacher-training program at the Iyengar Institute in San Francisco. Marianne has been a student of Shandor Remete for over ten years and his Shadow Yoga greatly influences her practice and teaching. Her study of T'ai Chi and Qi Gong has also deepened her awareness of and connection to the presence of the universal life force energy. Marianne’s asana teachings draw from the essential elements of many great teachers such as Shandor Remete, Ana Forest, Andre Lappa, Sarah Powers, Paul Grilley, Doug Keller, S.N.Goenka and Adyashanti, as well as from her own experience as a Bodyworker and from her study of the Nature of Mind.

Marianne’s classes provide a supportive and light-hearted atmosphere where students are encouraged to learn to explore the harmonics of postural alignment and the connection between body, breath and mind. At the beginning of the month Marianne creates and offers a new vinyasa sequence, where one's focus on transitions, the "going in to" and "coming out of" a posture is as important as being in the posture. The practice becomes a meditation in motion. Marianne designs her classes with experienced beginners and intermediate level students in mind, although beginners and all sincere students are welcome. Marianne has been a certified Bodywork Practitioner since 1996. She offers Shiatsu, Therapeutic Thai Massage, Deep Tissue, Chi Nei Tsang, Prenatal Massage, and On-Site Chair Massage. Marianne is also available for Somatic Yoga Therapy and Private yoga coaching sessions.

 

 

Tierra Tanner

Tierra’s curiosity for yoga and meditation was sparked by reading a book on astral travel and self-induced OBE. As her curiosity for esoteric philosophy grew, it became apparent that her life path was to be one immersed in spirituality. One day Tierra and a friend were looking through a local magazine and found an advertisement for yoga teacher training. Having dabbled in yoga at home,Tierra found that it fed not only her desire for spiritual growth, but the need for physical exertion, cultivated by a life time as a dancer. At that moment, Tierra's whole world brightened up; she had found her dharma. Since beginning to teach, Tierra has grown in all aspects of life. Teaching yoga has challenged Tierra to never be afraid of being herself, as well as serving as a vessel to share her innate love and kindness with others. Apart from teaching Vinyasa, Bikram Yoga, and Yin Yoga, Tierra specializes in Chair Yoga for senior citizens as well as Office Yoga for workplaces. Complimenting the physical practice of yoga, Tierra also practices Kriya Yoga and is a certified Reiki healer. These are, but the first doors opened for her in what she hopes to be a long and illustrious career of aiding humanity through deeper understanding of: the mind, body, spirit connection.

Yin yoga is a quiet practice with deep stretches that are held for 3-5 minutes with transitional poses and energy release in between. Yin is a mindful practice centered around the theory that the yoga sequences affect bodily systems and organ health as well as the muscles and outer body. Yin combines still, deep stretching, with mindfulness in a practice that balances out a more dynamic yoga practice. Aromatherapy is utilized as a tool to elevate your experience. Suitable for all levels.
