An ideal supplement to more dynamic “yang” yoga practices, yin yoga consists of longer held positions that target the connective tissues (fascia) surrounding joints, muscles and ligaments, dramatically enhancing flexibility, stability and range of motion throughout the body. As you release deeper into each pose, the focus comes to rest on stillness of breath, body and mind, and being with sensation. Restorative breath and meditation techniques relax the mind, activating the calming parasympathetic nervous system to leave you feeling invigorated, lithe, spacious, and stress-free. These classes are suitable for all levels, with modifications available for those recovering from injury. Read a blogpost that I wrote about yin yoga here.
