Yin Yoga is a beautiful, meditative, and centering yoga practice. It is a complementary practice to more active styles of yoga supporting maintenance of mobility, healing, and an opportunity to explore mindfulness and the subtler aspects of a personal practice. Working with gravity, students move gently through poses, holding each shape for 3-5 minutes. This slow pace allows the pose to work within the deeper, connective tissues while invigorating the energy centers of the body to release blockages and increase energy flow. Primarily floor based, Yin classes focus on the lower body; especially the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, and lower spine. This class is appropriate for all levels.
