Drawing from traditional yoga, Chinese medicine, Buddhist philosophy and meditation, Theresa will weave these threads into an embodied experience offering yin style practices and teachings. Designed for those wanting a deeper learning experience, she will take time to unpack the lessons each time: focusing on a different sheath of the body, meridian-organ pair, anatomical/physiological feature, and mindfulness technique.

Participants will learn:
• About yin vs. yang practices
• How yin tissues differ from yoga tissues and how to work with them
• How to teach yin yoga
• Sequencing yin poses for a class
• How to adapt postures for stiff bodies, injuries, as well as mobile bodies
• About the meridian system of Chinese medicine and how it relates to yin yoga
• About the physical and energetic qualities of the organs related to the meridians
• How to weave mindfulness and meditation practices into the asana

Theresa Murphy’s deepest intention in teaching yoga is to expand minds, open hearts, and to be a catalyst for discovering the wisdom and wonder of an embodied life. She cross-pollinates from many traditions, weaving the crafts of individualized alignment, skillful sequencing, therapeutics, breath-work, anatomy study, wisdom teachings, meditation, chanting, and open exploration of physical and mental awareness. Theresa is the primary teacher for Tias Little and the Prajna school, well as an Insight Yoga teacher with Sarah Powers and mentor in the Insight Yoga Institute. Theresa wholeheartedly devotes herself to practice. With over 20 years of study and practice she has made her life’s work a balance of teaching the Yoga Dharma, caring for her ailing mother, and ongoing studies with additional influences Amy Matthews, Patricia Walden, Jennifer Welwood, Joseph Goldstein, and Erich Schiffman.
