    DEEP STRETCH YIN

    Yin yoga originates from the ancient traditions of yoga & Chinese medicine. This practice emphasizes deep, grounded, passive stretches held for longer periods of time, traditionally three to five minutes. Yin is practiced with the muscles relaxed, instead focusing on the connective tissues (ligaments, tendons, joints, and fascia) of the hips, pelvis and spine and energetic meridians of the body. It is a very meditative practice, as we find a comfortable edge, become still and observe the responses of the mind and body. Great for increasing flexibility! The deep stretching Yin yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga.

    These classes incorporate a balance of deep stretches, Yin and Yang styles of Yoga a great combination to leave the body rejuvenated, energized and relaxed and activates the mind, body and spirit.

    Note: No yoga experience required for this class.
