Yin Yoga

Candlelit Yin Yoga

Class schedule
The Yin aspect of Yoga uses long-held relaxed floor postures to stretch and stimulate the “Yin” or deep connective tissues of the body. The two major differences between a Yin and a Yang Yoga practice are that Yin postures are done with the muscles relaxed and held for a longer time. This is because connective tissue does not stretch like muscle and will not respond well to brief stresses. This gentle practice will increase your flexibility, opening your hips, lower back, and shoulders and will enhance your overall sense of well-being. It is a wonderful complement to other yoga practices
This class will be practiced by Candlelight.  Melt into a delightfully, blissful practice in the serene, candlelit space as you unwind your day.

Yin & Ball

Class schedule
Sometimes stretching alone just isn’t enough. Experience the amazing benefits of a practice that combines long-held yin stretches and deep tissue release using massage balls. Find your way deeper into your yin poses after using the massage balls to locate and release tension-holding trigger points, and leave your mat feeling like you’ve just come off a massage table.

Yin Yoga

Class schedule
Yoga as practiced in North America is almost exclusively Yang or muscular in nature. The Yin aspect of Yoga uses long-held relaxed floor postures to stretch and stimulate the “Yin” or deep connective tissues of the body. The two major differences between a Yin and a Yang Yoga practice are that Yin postures should be done with the muscles relaxed and should be held a longer time. This is because connective tissue does not stretch like muscle and will not respond well to brief stresses. This gentle practice will increase your flexibility, opening your hips, lower back and shoulders and will enhance your overall sense of well-being. It is a wonderful complement to other yoga practices.

Yin/Yang Yoga

Class schedule
Find balance in movement and stillness. Use flowing preparatory movements to get the nervous system, connective tissue and muscles ready for the longer held yin poses. This is a safe and relaxed practice good for beginner and experienced yogis alike.

Yin/Restorative

Class schedule
Yoga poses that ask our muscles to move and contract are yang in nature. Yoga poses that ask our connective tissues to relax and lengthen over time are yin in nature. Yoga poses that ask nothing of our bodies except rest and healing are restorative in nature. This class brings together the perfect marriage of yin and restorative yoga with poses designed to support relaxation, deep stretching of the connective tissues, and total rest and healing of body and mind. Yin/Restorative is suitable for anyone and has benefits for everyone.
