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
Take time to breathe, be present and live in the moment. Allow your breathe to guide you as you flow through a sequence of postures. Find your inner self, increase your strength and flexibility and learn to flow with your breath. Join in the journey, one breath at a time.
I meet students where they are in the moment and teach how to allow your breathe to guide you through a practice, whether it's a vigorous flow or meditative yin/restorative class. I believe breathe and movement combine together to make for a wonderful practice. I love the twists and turns of a yoga journey that remind you to breathe, be present and live in the moment.
