EMW Yoga: Taoism 101 with Ani Binkly

March 28 @ 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

$50.00 – $60.00

Taoism is an ancient tradition that originated in China and is focused around the practice of living in harmony, or in the “flow” of the Tao, or “the Way.” This workshop is designed for yoga students who are interested in exploring the fundamentals of Taoism, and learn how Taoist philosophy may enhance their existing yoga practice. The workshop will begin with a lecture on the foundations of Taoism and discussion of how Taoism relates to yogic philosophy. We will explore the primary Taoist text, the Tao te Ching and practice applying its practical guidance in our yoga practice, which will include an orientation to and practice of yin yoga.

No previous knowledge of Taoism is required, although it is recommended that students have some familiarity with yoga and some previous yoga experience. All levels are welcome. The physical practice will include long-held still poses focused around the lower back and hips (see the website for the description of yin yoga for more information).

Students will leave with:
– Basic knowledge of Taoism (including a handout with key tenets), including
an exploration of the Tao te Ching, one of the primary Taoist texts
– An understanding of how Taoism relates to yogic philosophy
and can enhance the practice
– Experience exploring Taoist philosophy in a yin yoga practice
