Yoga Centering / Jin Shin Jyutsu
Centering alignment and balance are the primary principles through what I have named yoga alignment mudras.These are uniquely developed from the restorative poses of Iyengar yoga training . All from a centered inner core.
All of these poses are horizontal variations over different combinations of blocks,blankets, and chairs. These are simple timed precise poses that bring tremendous joy and calm with an ever deepening relaxation and understanding of our true selves.
All of these poses are taught in a way that are are struggle free and are horizontal variations that are worked with in a collaborative and playful way unique to each pose and body, so that body consciousness begins to arise. An ever deepening connection to our inner selves including a nourishing development of our intuitive instinctual capability bringing a greater ease in living.
This too brings a greater sense of wholeness and wellness within and the world around us enabling us to align in a peaceful way with everyday tensions and stresses.
Included in the one and a quarter hour class is the self help aspect of Jin Shin Jyutsu, an ancient gentle harmonizing art also named acutouch.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient gentle art that for centuries was lost and re- discovered by master Jurai Murai in Japan at the end of the 1800's. The self help allows the natural flow pathways in the body to re-establish themselves, allowing the body to re-generate . This was once called the art of longevity.
Jin Shin Jyutsu offers an intensified awareness, understanding and techniques for harmonizing and integrating the many levels of ourselves.
This also invites us with our own hands as jumper cables, to use simple combinations for self help to harmonize our our own daily tensions and stresses at any required level - be it body mind emotion and spirit.
" My destiny is in my own hands" says Mary Burmeister who brought the gift of Jin Shin Jyutsu ,( meaning the art of the creator through the person of compassion,) from Jiro Murai from Japan to America and now expanding all over the world.
