A gentle, therapeutic practice to slow down, tune in and let go.
Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and anatomical maps of the myo-fascia meridians, Yin poses target the body’s deeper tissues.
Safe stressing and stretching during longer, passive holds releases stored tension from the body-mind, similar to a long acupuncture session.
To enhance your Yin experience and connect even deeper to your wholeness, my Yin classes blend in Eastern practices such as mindfulness principles and meditation, pranayama and breath work, Ayurveda and Vedic philosophy.
With my guidance and modifications, this class is suitable for those who are pregnant.
Bring an extra layer and warm socks to stay warm during this slow, gentle practice.
This class runs immediately before Restorative + Yoga Nidra, giving you the option of two classes back-to-back on this evening.
“Yin Yoga with its long, slow stretches gives the chance for the muscles to calm down and then the fascia to stretch and release – this can facilitate the kind of re-patterning that leads to lasting release of chronic holdings, and in many cases, a profound change of mind and body.” – Thomas Myers, Fasica Expert and Author
