Yin Yoga incorporates familiar postures that are used to cool the body and deepen the breath. These gentle movements set the stage for deeper relaxation with restorative postures. Yin is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (Yang) styles of Yoga. Yin generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.
In a Yin class, you will hold each pose for between 2-5 minutes. The focus of the practice is placed upon lengthening the connective tissues, overall relaxation and a desire to improve flexibility and balance.
Yin helps you with breathing, meditation and focus. This class is suitable for all levels. It is taught in our cool studio and incorporates bolsters and blocks for deepening and/or modifying the postures.
