Do you want to have more openness, extension, and balance in your yoga practice? Then Yin Yoga is the class for you! Whereas Power Vinyasa Yoga (yang) emphasizes activity, muscular strength and stamina, Yin Yoga focuses on stillness in passive postures, lengthening the connective tissues and allowing gravity to do the work.
Most Yin postures (asanas) are held for 5-7 minutes, and in doing so, the body responds by making connective tissues longer, stronger and more pliable.
This practice is all about exploring your “edge”- the sweet space in between discomfort and pain. Yes, we go THERE. Your teacher will be the motivation to breathe through the intensity, to quiet the mind, and allow your body and spirit to be open to the healing properties and energy movement of this practice.
