Yiwen Eliens: Aroma Yin Yoga

Aroma Yin Yoga – Yiwen Eliens

tuesday 16:00-17:30 Studio Wittenstraat

Yin yoga is a gentle and meditative practice that invites the attention to shift from mind to the felt experience.
Holding each posture for a few minutes gives us the opportunity to turn the attention inwards and investigate what is truthful. By genuinely observing what is taking place from moment to moment we start to distinguish the difference between the raw sensation and the interpretation of the mind.
In her new class “Aroma Yin Yoga”, Yiwen will guide you through a deep relaxing Yin journey towards Self, with the use of a carefully selected blend of essential oils. 

Yiwen Eliens Wang was born in a traditional Chinese Taoist family. She moved to Amsterdam in 2004 and completed her doctoral study (PhD) in Mathematics and Computer Science at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Yiwen took her first yoga class in 2003, which became the beginning of an ongoing experience with many yoga masters worldwide: she completed intensive yoga teacher trainings in London (Kids Yoga), Amsterdam (Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga), India (Hatha Yoga), Taiwan and China (Taoist Yin). 

As a former scientific researcher, the long-term academic training brought her strong interest, study and focus in Sanskrit, anatomy, yoga philosophy and its relation with the traditional Taoism (Chi, Yin-Yang and five elements). For over 15 years, these has become the foundation in her practicing and teaching yoga, which also makes Yiwen’s yoga class special and inspiring. In 2019 (March), Yiwen published her book “Kids Yoga Asanas”.
