Mindfulness & Yin Yoga Retreat

Mindfulness & Yin Yoga Retreat (with Chinese translation)

February 1- 8, 2014

with Michelle Chu

About the Retreat

Though the retreat title is Mindfulness and Yin yoga retreat, in the morning practice, we will incorporate meditation, pranayama and Hatha style asana practice. In the afternoon session, we will share mindfulness philosophy and yin yoga. This retreat will help one to explore from the gross body to the subtle body and also start /or continue building a foundation for mindfulness and Yin yoga practice. The retreat is designed for all-level practitioner. For people who already have a foundation of asana practice and would like to start meditation and yin yoga, it’s an ideal introduction.

參加避靜營是個開始新年的好方式。這ㄧ週,在蘇美島如人間仙境的海邊,我們的瑜伽學校裡,早晨梵唱,靜坐,呼吸及體位法練習; 下午討論正念哲學和陰瑜珈練習。瑜伽學校的主廚將為我們準備當地新鮮及充滿能量的悅性食物。中午休息的時間,您可以沿著白色沙灘散步或在天然鹽水泳池中放鬆,享受著熱帶陽光。 下午正念哲學和陰瑜珈練習後,可以藉由蒸氣草藥浴來排毒舒緩身體。然後在半開放式的涼亭餐廳享受海邊微風晚餐。給予自己這ㄧ週的時間和空間,讓身心靈能在這大自然的環境下重新的整合療癒,讓內在以飽滿全新的能量開始新的一年。

About the Teacher

MichelleheadMichelle is a yogini who has experienced how yoga change her health and life. She comes from a Hatha/Ashtanga yoga background and her practice is also deeply and evenly influenced by pranayama, yin yoga, and meditation. She completed RYT 500 teacher training with Sri O.P. Tiwari and Paul Dallaghan and is also certified Yin yoga teacher by Sarah Powers. Sarah’s teaching of interweaving the mindfulness insights, practice of yoga and Buddhist wisdom resonated so much with Michelle. Other buddism wisdom also have deeply influenced Michelle’s practice and teaching: Thick Nhat Hann, a Vietnamese Zen Buddist monk, who has dedicated his life to help people through books, speeches, meditation retreats to live a mindful life with peace.

By practicing yin yoga and developing a habit of mindfulness practice, Michelle’s yang/dynamic yoga practice has shifted. Yoga not only provided her a deeper understanding of the Self and truth, it also brought her transformative changes and the ability to embody harmony, love, and joy in life. On this note, Michelle is grateful of all the inspiration and teachings from every teacher on this path of Yoga. Michelle is currently teaching in one of the most recognizable studio in Asia.

是位生活瑜伽人,她在生活裡體驗到了瑜珈如何改變健康與生活。她來自哈達及八支的瑜伽背景,但她的練習同時也深受生命能量呼吸法練習,陰瑜伽和冥想的練習。她向 Sri O.P. Tiwari and Paul Dallaghan 學習並完成了美國瑜珈 RYT 500 小時認證並且與 Sarah Powers老師學習完成了陰瑜珈師資訓練。Michelle 對於 Sarah Powers老師的教學融合了正念內觀,瑜珈練習,及佛家智慧產生極大共鳴。來自越南,透過演說,靜心營及多本著作來幫助人們以正念過生活的一行禪師也對Michelle的練習和教學有著深遠的影響。陰瑜珈及正念的練習讓Michelle的陽剛練習起了改變。瑜珈不僅讓她對真實自我有了更深的了解,同時也帶給她轉化和在生命裡彰顯和諧,愛和喜悅。Michelle 由衷感謝瑜珈路上遇見的老師們。Michelle 目前任教於亞洲的Space

Michelle leads us to observe the breath to be aware of our body sensations, change of emotions and the movement of thoughts. Furthermore to use such awareness on the mat to trace back on our own life experience and also cultivate the loving-kindness and compassion towards self and others. This practice will also extend outside of yoga mat, the loving-kindness and compassion let us know that we are not alone and this is an important life skill for people nowadays.
