Damey Meyer is exploring the possibility of holding gentle, heart-centered Yin Yoga sessions at The Church of Conscious Harmony.
Yoga is a form of conscious movement that can help prepare the body and mind for Centering Prayer, as it cultivates compassionate self-observation and thus receptivity to higher centers. It is also an opportunity to anchor a weekly aim in the body as well as integrate Work ideas discussed in the journey groups, classes, and services. We would like to explore the possibility of holding gentle, heart-centered Yin Yoga sessions on campus. All levels of experience are welcome, whether you are new to the mat or have a desire to practice conscious movement with others who are on the spiritual journey. (Please reach out to Damey at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Damey is committed to finding a day and time that works for those who are interested.)
What is Yin Yoga?
Yin Yoga is a passive style of yoga that generally targets the connective tissues, such as ligaments, bones, and joints of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. Yin Yoga is suitable for almost all levels of students, as most of the poses are executed at ground level on the mat. The goal of Yin Yoga is to soften the contraction of the muscles, so that the deeper connective tissue can be accessed. This process involves letting go of constriction, feeling deeply, allowing subtle shifts, experiencing an edge of sensation and embracing a willingness to maintain presence with the edge until it softens. It promotes internal observation and surrender.
A little bit about Damey
Damey was introduced to yoga in 2011 at a time of intense transition in her life. Yoga provided a grounding unlike she had ever experienced, and it kept calling her back to the mat as a practitioner until her teacher training in 2018. After completing Waking Yoga, a trauma informed yoga training at ‘Yoga Yoga’, she has a deep wish to provide a safe and loving space for individuals to feel into their bodies and trust the wisdom they find there.
