Yin yoga encourages balance, harmony, and stillness. It is a quiet practice that explores the connective tissue and joints of the body. Postures are passive and held on the floor for a length of time. The physical focus is to release holding in connective tissue which frees areas of chronic tightness, primarily in the hips, legs, and lower back. Yin yoga also encourages energy enhancement by opening lines of energy (meridians or nadis) helping to restore vital energy. It works to enhance awareness and healing on the physical, mental, and emotional levels, harmonizing every layer of our being and helping us to find calm amid the chaos of our daily lives. This class is open to all levels.
