Yin Yoga & Psychological Inquiry with Xenia Pestova-Bennett

Yin Yoga & Psychological Inquiry

Stress and anxiety affect us all, impacting our sleep, quality of life and ultimately our health. As we race through our busy days, subjected to seemingly unending demands on our time and energy, we may find ourselves “battling” with our environment and our own critical inner voices. Instead of pushing away uncomfortable internal feedback or fighting with the “self-improvement” committee made up of fragmented parts of our psychological system, we can learn to befriend them, listen to the messages they are sending and facilitate healing and integration.

In these sessions, we will step off the treadmill, relax, unwind and take stock in order to prepare for the year ahead. Join us as we explore inner psychological inquiry exercises drawing on the Internal Family Systems model of therapy and grounded in Yoga Mindset Coaching to pay attention to the "parts" of you that are active right now. We will support this work with calming yoga poses that connect with the energies of the season to slow down and elicit the relaxation response.

The sessions are open to practitioners of all levels of experience and ability. Available in-person or online.
