These classes will be held in 6 weeks rotation on Wed mornings at 10-11:30am with Pamela and MJ and Thursday evenings with Elsa from 5:10-6:35p.
These classes are a long, slow, deep style of yoga done on the floor that targets the connective tissues, ligaments, and joints; Generally in the hips, pelvis and spine. It enhances flexibility, range of motion, and allows for stillness of the mind. While initially this style of yoga may seem passive, or soft, yin practice can be challenging due to the long duration of the poses. Posture are held for 3-10 minutes to help rejuvenate and recondition the tissue and allow the body to reach greater depths in a pose.
Yin is a perfect complement to more vigorous styles of yoga or any athletic workout which generally emphasize internal heat and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. It is suitable for all levels - no prior experience is required.
Please note: Yin Yoga is not restorative yoga. Like all yoga practices, if the tissues you are targeting for exercise are damaged in some way, please give yourself a chance to heal before resuming your regular practice.
