Deep Release is the Yin to your busy, active life, a practice that encourages a deep sense of physical and emotional release.
(This class can be challenging)
This Yin Yoga inspired class exercises the bones, lubricates the joints and deeply stretches the body's connective tissue, especially in the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. Yin does not seek to stretch our muscles; rather, the work is in the body's connective tissues, especially in the hard to reach areas of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Instead of the rhythmic contraction and release that best stretches muscles, connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady holds. When we gently stretch connective tissue, the body will respond by making muscles a little longer and stronger. The entire Yin practice consists of particular poses (compared to most yang practices).
This session is hugely beneficial to a wide variety of people - from our most flexible and strongest practitioners to those with limited mobility, injury, chronic pain and seemingly insurmountable tightness. Your body will feel free and open, releasing deeply-stored tension. We can all use a little of that.
