Ease your way into the body through a mindful approach to gentle stretching as a doorway to meditation. Approach each basic posture with deep breathing to lengthen muscles and stabilize the joints.

Given permission to slow down, the nervous system relaxes and the breath calms the mind. In turn, we become stronger and more resilient both mentally and physically.

Yin yoga provides balance and harmony to an active or busy life. While yang styles of yoga are very popular in our society, our bodies are constantly striving to restore balance, which yin yoga does. It targets the “yin tissues” in the body, the connective tissues—ligaments, bones, and even joints—by holding poses for longer periods of time (3-5 mins). Incredibly conducive to a meditative state, the stillness of the practice teaches the mind and body two valuable lessons: receptivity and acceptance.
