Yang/Yin symbolizes the duality you need for balance. This class will start with a great practice that is invigorating and challenging. The first half of the class, the yang portion is a vigorous practice meant to increase heart rate and release pent-up energy. The remainder of the class is slower moving and focuses on quieting the mind, deeply stretching the muscles and connective tissue. Poses will be held for three to five minutes each, as we work through the yin tissues, stretching deep into the connective tissues and joints. We will spend more time in our yin practice because most of our usual activity is very yang. This is an excellent complement to many athletic activities. Stretching will improve your performance and prevent injuries. We will find the balance between both Yin and Yang for optimum health & positive thinking.
