Yin Yoga combines Hatha Yoga with principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, stimulating channels of energy (Chi, or Qi) in the body in ways similar to acupuncture and acupressure.
In this class, floor postures are held passively for 3-5 minutes in order to access a safe and positive 'stress' on the denser tissues (facia, tendons, ligaments) in the body. Physically, the practice restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints. Energetically, Yin Yoga opens the body's meridian system, which enhances the body's energetic flow and supports emotional balance. This practice emphasizes stillness and inward silence and will leave you feeling totally relaxed! All levels welcome.
