Yin Yoga

 

Of course!  The path to heaven doesn’t lie down in flat miles.  It’s in the imagination with which you perceive this world and the gestures with which you honor it.

~ Mary Oliver

Yin yoga classes are quiet and focused, combining long-held forms (2 to 5 minutes) with mindfulness meditation and breath work. Yin forms are practiced with the muscles relaxed, allowing the benefits to move deeper into the ligaments and fascia of your body. This opens up your range of motion, and leaves behind a surprising sense of lightness and ease. Since Yin Yoga emphasizes increasing flexibility and a sense of centered calm, the practice is a good complement for more active forms of yoga, and for other forms of exercise that target the muscles.

Available in 60 or 90 minute sessions, longer classes can include active yang yoga sequences for a balanced, self-contained practice.
