Yin and Yang by Anat Geiger
After a quick stroll through the festival, I followed the signs and reached the Shiva tent. I quickly rolled out my mat and started following the instructions of Anat Geiger. The class was supposed to be a yin and yang class but due to the weather conditions we had to keep on moving to keep ourselves warm and had a more active class instead. Anat describes Yin and Yang as the two fundamental and complementary forces in the Universe. Yang is characterised by strength, rhythm, repetition and will power and Yin is manifested in softness, stillness, slowness and kindness. So she says that in order to cultivate a healthy and fulfilling life we need to keep both aspects in balance and its up to us to develop the intuition and wisdom through our yoga practice to know what we really need and when.
