With a warm-up and welcome by Karen, the well attended workshop led by Michelle and Joel Levey got underway. In the clip below, Joel tells of his experience at the Stress Clinic at Seattle’s Group Health Cooperative, working with a “Popeye” type character to reduce his stress and pain. It makes for an entertaining story with a simple message. Enjoy.

Zack began the workshop with a clear and entertaining talk about what is “yin yoga” – the deep internal tissue work that will change the body and mind. Then the class started with a wonderful warm-up exercise called “monkey retreat – monkey advance” that reminded the webteam of tai chi. After warm up, the class entered this “yin” state of long held poses that relaxed and stretched the body. At the same time, the mind scanned the body and released tension, while yielding to gravity.
