Yin and Yang: Iyengar Yoga + Chinese Medicine 

with Ruth Knill, LicAc

In this workshop we will explore alignment concepts using the tools of Traditional Chinese Medicine: yin yang in skillful proportions, balancing the 5 elements and 12 meridians. This complementary perspective of yin yang will deepen your experience of alignment and energy in yoga and other embodied practices. The workshop will emphasize yin yang pairs of meridians, fostering a vital, intuitive, and grounded practice.

RUTH KNILL, PhD, LicAc received a doctorate in applied mathematics from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, publishing more than 30 papers in the field of astronomy. She enjoyed her first yoga classes in 1997, but it was through later Iyengar-inspired training that Ruth discovered the power of awareness to transform the body and awaken its intelligence. Moving beyond mere emulation of teachers or others, yoga became the cultivation of deep attention and sensitivity to the details of bodily balance and alignment. Ruth began life-changing studies with Austin-based yoga teacher Bekir Algan, which inspired her to alter her path in life and begin a training in Traditional Chinese Medicine. A licensed acupuncturist in private practice since 2003, Ruth is a certified yoga teacher whom the light of yoga continues to guide, with awareness as her refuge.
