This is the Yin to our Yang studio schedule! This form of yoga is a wonderful compliment to a more Yang yoga practice and lifestyle that we as Westerners find ourselves in far too often. Yin is unique in that once an appropriate edge is found, the pose is held with relaxed muscles over a period of time. Keeping the muscles relatively passive allows the benefits of the posture to transfer to connective tissue, such as ligament, fascia, and even bone at the joints and throughout the body. Success in a Yin pose is characterized by the feelings of fragility and vulnerability, and a lack of desire to move. Due to its focus on the spine and central nervous system it is an ideal practice to promote peace and self-realization.
This class is 90 minutes with no added heat or humidity.
