Mindful: Yin Yoga

April 14, 2018 / 9:30am

$25; $20 for MOCA Members

Eastern philosophies and religious traditions such as Tibetan Buddhism, the mind and body’s relationship to consciousness, and the fundamental structures of healing in the natural and human worlds underpin INDUCTION. Weaving sound, touch, and image in a low-lit, deep blue space, INDUCTION encourages awareness of the relationship and balance between body, mind, and spirit. MOCA is offering a series of Saturday morning classes led by area experts designed to support these reflective experiences and build mindfulness.

YIN YOGA:
Join Hope Hamling Hood, founder and owner of Cleveland’s Abide Yoga for Yin yoga. Yin yoga is a still practice during which the asanas are done seated or reclining on the floor. Each pose is held from 1-10 minutes and helps to safely release tight connective tissue, joints, and fascia. It also helps us to learn to keep our bodies and our minds still.

HOPE HAMLING HOOD:
Attention, breath, and movement (no matter how subtle) can be transformative. Through the years, the practices of yoga and meditation have been Hope's creative outlet, a shelter from the demands of life, a learning laboratory, and a lens through which to view the world. Hope is the founder of Abide Yoga, where she invites people to come home to themselves.

About Abide Yoga:
Abide Yoga is a community yoga studio in the Larchmere neighborhood in Cleveland. Offering a wide variety of passive and active yoga classes, Abide focuses on creativity and curiosity, encouraging everyone who comes to become more fluent in their own bodies and minds.
