Be the Change Yoga Studio

Over 3000 years ago Lao Tzu transcribed the Tao Te Ching at the request of his students before he went into solitary retreat. People look to this ancient text today for its wisdom and thematic advice; however, practitioners of Taoist Internal Arts see the Tao Te Ching as a practical instruction book with very specific directions hidden under the veneer of symbolism and metaphor. In this workshop. “The Mysterious Yin,” we will go beyond conceptualization and enjoy the direct experience of connecting with the Tao, following closely to directions from Lao Tzu.

The ancient Taoists were like internal engineers, or “inner astronauts,” people who saw the human body as a vehicle with inconceivable capacities to convert the raw energy of life (called jing) into a pure spiritual connection with the divine (shen). Understanding how to work with subtlety, gentleness, grace, and ease, the Taoists moved energy downward an inward, as well as upward and out, cultivating an inner ecosystem that aligned with the natural world. Today in the United States, our culture emphasizes and celebrates the Yang energy flow more than the Yin, which has created an imbalance inside us and on the earth. This workshop aims to counteract that.

Through detailed experiments and practice over thousands of years,  The lineage of Lao Tzu learned time-tested methods to:
