Yin Yoga is a slower paced yoga, meditative in nature, in which you sink into poses for 3-5 minutes targeting the connective tissue of the body. The poses are performed while either seated or laying on the yoga mat, with a minimal amount of physical exertion aiming to release physical and emotional tensions that have accumulated in the body due to the stress of work and personal lives. Some benefits of a yin yoga practice include reducing stress and anxiety, improving flexibility both on and off the mat, releasing fascia and improving the flow of chi or prana in the body through meridian stimulation. This is an all levels class, appropriate for beginners and seasoned yogis alike. Please bring yoga mat, water and white socks. Yoga blocks, straps and blankets will be provided.
