SACRED CACAO + YIN YOGA RETREAT: The Sacred Center, Portsmouth RI

  • The Sacred Center 324 East Main Road Portsmouth, RI, 02871 United States (map)

Yin Yoga with Alicia Barry is known as The Quiet Practice or the Practice of Quiet Power. It is a dynamic blend of modern meridian theory, floor poses held in quiet tranquility, and the contemplative teaching of a Yin style form of meditation. The practice addresses every level of our being : physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual. Within the context of Eastern medicine, “the unimpeded flow of chi” restores balance in the psycho/emotional, energy and spiritual bodies.

The long-held quiet Yin postures soften and release the connective tissue of the body and primarily targets the bones, joints, tendons and ligaments which have become tight and restricted through injuries, repetitive stress, poor postural habits and even emotional trauma. The connective tissue (fascial layers) houses the meridian system, known to many of us through acupuncture and shiatsu. The contemplative practice of a receptive style of meditation within the poses, helps to cultivate an internal atmosphere of inquiry, receptivity and compassion leading to a state of tranquility.
