While most yoga classes focus on movement and strengthening and stretching muscles (yang activities), Yin Yoga focuses on stretching connective tissue, joints, and fascia. Yin poses are typically held from 2 – 5 minutes each. This allows the body to overcome muscle tension, and surrender into each pose, taking whatever alignment feels best.
No two bodies are created the same, and yin yoga places emphasis on the practitioner’s ability to discern sensations within their body to determine what feels best in each pose. Yin yoga can be challenging, both mentally and physically, due to the longer duration of most poses. But once you give it a try, you’ll realize what’s been missing from your yoga practice – balance. Suitable for all levels, this class will also encompass relaxing restorative poses, providing time to enjoy the sweetness created by the focus on yin. All classes will end with a 5-10 minute savasana or final resting pose.
