Yin Yoga postures (asanas) are held for slightly longer periods then the other classes targeting the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and lower spine as well as the connective tissues surrounding the muscles and joints for a greater increase of blood flow to nourish and rejuvenate. When your body stops moving the muscles, even the mind, can relax. A perfect balance to the stronger (yang) practices or fast paced lifestyles. Slowing down we pay more attention preventing physical and mental exhaustion. A complimentary class for all athletes or anyone with tight sore bodies. Expect deep hip, back and leg openings with longer holds to gain strength and increased mobility.
Suitable for Students new to yoga, mature aged, or after a slower paced class. Perfect if you know your body is tight or do a lot of strength work.
