Yin Yoga is a quiet, meditative practice that uses long-held passive poses to enhance and renew the body’s vital energy, prevent joint rigidity and immobility, and nourish the body at the cellular level. Yin aids with digestion, muscle repair, organ detoxification and emotional processing. The long held postures allow the connective tissue (ligaments, tendons, joints, and fascia) to strengthen, and with a consistent practice you will notice postural improvement, increased ease in movement and an overall balanced being. This is the perfect complimentary practice to any strength building or cardio exercise as well as an active Yang or vinyasa practice. It is also great for anyone recovering from injury or illness and pre or post-natal. Please note that this class is held at room temperature to increase the effectiveness of the practice - socks are welcome.
Ever thought about trying meditation, but have felt overwhelmed or unqualified? According to Buddhist teacher Judy Lief, a restless body, wandering mind, and out of control emotions are all you need to get started. Which means that most of us are more than qualified! Learn and practice the foundational elements of mediation, in addition to other techniques that can be easily implemented into daily life for more peace and presence. We will practice the same technique for four-week increments in order to really engrain these ideas into our meditation practice and into our lives. Drop-ins of all levels are welcome and encouraged to attend.
