Acu~Yoga is a holistic practice combining the breath, yoga postures and acupressure points to release tension, increase flexibility and balance the body’s vital health systems. Although acupressure and yoga are separate ancient healing methods, the intention of these two practices is similar. Both aim to bring balance to mind, body and spirit.
Acupressure is a holistic healing method that originated from China. It is a gentle, healing approach that works with specific points on the body which tend to collect tension. When the tension is released, the body’s natural life force energy (chi) is allowed to flow freely throughout the energy pathways of the body (meridians). This sets the stage for wellness and restoration. Yoga, developed out of India, is a mindful practice using the breath and body positions (asanas) to achieve flexibility, inner calmness and balance of the body’s regulatory systems.
Acu~Yoga, as the combination of the two methods, becomes a highly effective practice for addressing stress and stress related tension and/or symptoms. The unique combination of working with the acupressure points, the breath and the gentle postures supports the body to naturally and easily let go of muscular tension. The process of practicing Acu~Yoga additionally creates space for emotional balancing and mental clarity.
