Perfect for beginners or experienced students who want a slower paced, less strenuous class. In this class, we focus on stretching postures, gentle flows and breathing techniques that release stress, reduce tension and promote relaxation through a calm, meditative approach to the practice. A wonderful class for students of all ages and for anyone that wants to slow down, learn to quiet their mind and be nurtured.
Yin Yoga is a nourishing practice that focusing on slowing down and “allowing”. Most Yoga practices are a balance of Yin and Yang energy – heating, invigorating and active work complemented with cooling, calming and resting. Similar to Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga focuses on the more calming or “Yin” element of the practice.
Yin Yoga focuses on releasing the deeper soft tissues of body; our ligaments, joints, fascia, and bones and places a particular emphasis on the areas of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. In Yin Yoga, we hold postures for longer periods of time to allow a gentle release within in the body, a return to the breath, the cultivation of mindfulness and the opportunity to truly experience the present moment.
