Yin yoga is a slow, meditative, and healing form of yoga. Practicing Yin regularly will help to balance out yang styles of yoga, (strengthening, and Vinyasa) we practice, and help us to decompress, and relieve stress and anxiety we experience in our daily lives. In this class we will mindfully move into poses which are held anywhere from 1-5 mins which will target the connective tissue and fascia. The poses will mostly focus on hips, pelvis, and the lower spine, but we will also work in stretches for the upset body as well. There are three laws to Yin yoga. 1. Finding your edge- positive discomfort. NOT PAIN 2. Finding stillness- once you find your edge settle into the sweet spot. 3.Let time flow- the longer you hold the pose, the deeper you will go. The deeper you go, the deeper you will heal. The more you heal, the better you will feel!! Yin helps to create better circulation, joint health, and will improve flexibility.
