Yin Yoga is a deep practice that encourages the body to relax rather than engage. Yin is as much a mental practice as it is a physical practice, moving inwardly to find a balanced state of peace. In this practice we focus on releasing the connective tissue “fascia” to create range of motion in our joints and muscles by targeting ligaments, bones and joints. As this practice emphasizes stillness and silence, Yin Yoga prepares both the body and the mind for deeper experiences in meditation. Yin Yoga is the perfect practice to counter-balance a busy and fast-paced life style. Please bring a bolster or pillow, block, and towel or blanket if you have it available. Some props provided.
