Yin yoga

Time: 10.00-10.45

Yin yoga is a restorative and therapeutic yoga style that is about calming the body and mind. A counterweight to yang-based, more physical yoga. Yin yoga are positions with a light, soft stretch, performed in silence and with great presence. Each position is held for at least 3-5 minutes, which gives you time to unwind the mind and feel your body. Here we work with the body's fascia, connective tissue, more than the muscles. This is achieved by going far enough into the position and holding it for a long time. The focus is often on the hips and lumbar spine, areas rich in connective tissue and which, according to yoga philosophy, store both physical and emotional tensions. No pre-registration required. The activity is for private guests.

Zenmeditation; zazen & kinhin

Time: 12.45-13.30; 18.45-19.30

Here you get to try two different techniques that are based on the Zen Buddhist tradition. It is exercising presence and observing what is, within and outside yourself. The session begins with a short introduction, after which you will learn how to sit in the zazen, the sitting meditation and what form the walking meditation, kinhin has. After sitting in the quiet, silent meditation for a while, the group gets up and performs a silent walking meditation that then ends with a moment of sitting again. The session ends with a short reflection. The focus is on breathing and posture. The methods are simple in their form and you can advantageously continue to practice at home. No pre-registration is required. The activity is for private guests.
