Warm Yin Yoga


Yin

“Yin Yoga is a practice much needed in today’s difficult divisive times.  It offers us a way to leave behind our ideas of how we should be, and return to our true selves, where all lasting healing takes place.” – Biff Mithoefer

The essence of Yin Yoga is to surrender. Qualities of yin yoga are slow, allowing, and yielding (opposite of many yang and energetic varieties). Yin focuses on postures that lengthen the muscles surrounding the hips, pelvis, and lower back. Students typically hold these postures for 3-10 minutes per side in order to lengthen the connective tissue that surrounds the joints and increase its elasticity. The elasticity of our connective tissue diminishes with physical activity and aging, which makes Yin essential for injury prevention and joint health. Since a Yin Yoga practice often includes several long, seated forward bending postures, it also restores energy and calms the nervous system. Pure bliss!

This class is open to all levels.
