The purpose of Yin yoga is to grow the body flexible and promote healing, to develop our flow of energy, and to enliven our innate ability to move with fluidity, power, and grace. Paulie’s approach to yoga is about following our personal path. Paulie gently guides students in opening to their intuitive hearts and discovering the artist within, and in trusting and expressing their own unique way of being in the practice.

In this training participants will explore both the yin and yang aspects of yoga postures that are inspired by the movements of animals and that activate the elemental forces contained within our energetic field. Through this process we fully engage our connection with the natural world, we awaken to our spontaneous and playful spirit, we transcend the boundaries of assumed limitations and learn more than just a technique for doing yoga, we learn a way of being yoga, of living it in our day to day lives. We can then bring these gifts to the lives of those we touch.
