Yin Yoga Directory

Welcome to the Yoga Journal Yin Yoga Directory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Yin Yoga into their practice and philosophy.

Yin Yoga classes are designed to be a physically passive practice. Its aim is to maintain mobility in the deep connective tissue such as the ligaments and fascia. With out practicing Yin Yoga the fascia and ligaments tend to become stuck and less pliable with age. It uses seated and supine poses held for long periods of time. Props can be used to help support the person as well. Some poses can be help up to 5 minutes at a time. Most of the poses are focused on the lower back and hips. These areas of the body have dense connective tissue and require extra care and attention. In addition, Yin helps move the flow of prana freeing

If you can't smile then you're doing this wrong

I have been practicing Yoga for 5 years and now wish to share the knowledge of self and Yoga I have collected with others.  My classes are casual and a great place to start a practice or to grow your practice reaching for more advanced poses.  I am an RYT 200, trained in CPR and First Aid in the event of any emergency.  I have studied Yoga for Trauma, Chair and Chakra Yoga as I reach into the deeply personal healing work I feel called for.  I am also a Local Church Lay Servant in the United Methodist Church.

As a Reikimaster, Kat is an alleviator of the body. Motivated to teach and help others getting their minds out to connect with body and breath, to be more present. Practicing yoga since her freshmen quarter Fall 1997 at CalPoly, her practice deepened as the years passed.

As a certified Ayurveda Wellness Counselor, she can incorporate diet and asana recommendations to achieve balance within. Being in the field of healthcare for over a dozen years as a certified phlebotomist technician, lab assistant, nurse assistant, and nursing student, she is motivated for self-care. Her many years of mechanical engineering, nursing, biochemistry, biological sciences help her see the anatomical, physiological aspects and importance for alignment. Studying the Patanjali's Sutras, yogic philosophy, and original texts, she has aligned herself with ancient wise theories. Applying them to form and function is an everyday practice.

Keri Honea has, in all honesty, not been practicing yoga for decades. She was talked into trying out yoga with a friend in 2014. Keri begrudgingly went, strongly believing that yoga was just a bunch of hippie dippie baloney. By her first class, she was HOOKED. A few months in, she wanted to be a teacher. Yoga completely changed her life. As such, she couldn’t keep it all to herself. She had to share yoga with others and hopefully change their lives the way only yoga can.
