HOME COMFORT: Yang-Yin (sign up deadline 2pm Fridays) • $15.00

A Marriage of Strenght & Sweetness

During the months of January - March - it is recommended you sign up by 2pm Fridays.

Class begins with a strong Moderate class focusing on arm strenght and belly muscles. We will then have the 2nd half anchored with long, sweet (but challenging) stretches.


Yin, the feminine principle: dark, passive, receptive, reflective, withdrawn, cool, introspective. Yin yoga was developed to penetrate deep into connective tissue expanding flexibility and aiding healing while stimulating the nadis or meridians to loosen energetic blockages and increase energy flow.

Yang, the masculine principle: light, active, outward and upward moving, extrospective. Yang yoga is the more traditional hatha or ashtanga based asana practice that develops muscular strength and stamina.

Yin/Yang Yoga is a class that balances the newly developed Yin yoga practice for the first half of the class with traditional Yang yoga practices for the second half of the class. This class can provide you with a practice that starts with deep, introspective, and quiet yoga that evolves into an energizing and uplifting yoga that sets you on your way for the rest of your day.
