Yin Yoga

Connect. Open. Stretch. 

Yin Yoga is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang – the opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things. Yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect of things. When looking at the body, the stiff connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) are considered to be yin, while the mobile and pliable muscles and the blood are considered yang. In this class you will restore the body in a gentle practice where postures, mainly focused on the lower body, are passively held for several minutes. Yin Yoga supports the body’s healing of injury, making it an effective physiotherapeutic practice. This practice creates space to maintain and expand a healthy range of emotion.

This is an all levels class. It is a gentle practice where flexibility is not required. It can be a powerful experience as each posture can generate both physical and emotional tension release.
