A meditative, healing practice. Intensify your yoga by holding poses to allow for longer, deeper stretching. A great complement to an active (Yang) practice. Yin yoga bypasses the muscles and allow you to nourish and strengthen the deeper tissues. Connective tissues, fascia, joints, ligaments and bones receive gentle, low load stress. The poses are held between 2-5 minutes or longer and the muscles stay passive in order to pass the stress on to the deeper tissues. Each Yin pose is an opportunity to go inward and meditate. It is a wonderful complement to an active (Yang) practice and a much needed tool for anyone who needs to unwind a tight body, mind and heart.
The room will be maintained warm around 78 degrees(+/-3), but not heated to a higher temperature like our regular heated classes.
