Work the connective tissues of our ligaments, joints and deep fascial networks in this meditative practice focused on deep stretching, breathing and relaxation. Props are used to support the body as postures are held for an extended time allowing for deep stretches that are soft, rather than muscle driven. Class ends with a guided Yoga Nidra savasana “yogic sleep” – a conscious state between wakefulness and sleep. The teacher’s voice leads the shifting of your attention in a practice of letting go, willful emptying that leads to calmness, quietness and clarity. No previous experience required; beginner-friendly and open to all levels.

No previous experience required; beginner-friendly and open to all levels.
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. Props and modifications will be offered. 6-months of yoga experience recommended yet open to all levels.
