Yin Yoga is designed to embrace stillness in the body to allow for space. It's an accessible yoga practice that explores the inner workings of your mind-body-soul through slow movement and deep stillness. You will be invited to remain in each posture for 2-5 minutes (or longer) to stimulate the deep connective tissues surrounding the joints and ligaments, thereby increasing mobility, stability, and overall vitality.
Yin Yoga postures and sequences are designed specifically to loosen deep energetic stagnations, which will allow for a greater sense of balance, flow, and calm energy. This class is the perfect complement to a more active style of yoga OR a yang lifestyle, plus it's great for beginners and advanced yogis alike!
