Yin Yoga and Storytelling – Module 3
About This Event
Join Biff Mithoeffer, author of The Yin Yoga Kit, for a Yin Yoga training that explores the impact of storytelling on your life.
Storytelling is the most ancient of the healing arts. Stories remind us that our lives ebb and flow. Understanding how your life moves through the universe’s bigger story can help you recognize what stories to let go of and what stories to nourish.
By putting yourself in Yin postures and accessing your deep connective tissue, you will begin to connect with your stories on a very deep level. Some of these stories are healing and can be embraced, while some no longer serve you and can be transformed. When you understand the role storytelling can have in your life, you can learn to genuinely listen to your own stories and respect them for what they can teach you.
