For this two hour Yin Yoga class, participants will have a chance to yield and allow their bodies to prepare for deep relaxation. This practice will increase mobility and strength in the joints, by stretching the connective tissue in a safe and informed way. The students will be instructed on how to come into the posture at the appropriate depth for themselves, with the intention of embracing the stillness. Yin Yoga will allow the practitioner to move past resistance, while surrendering to the breath in a soft and steady rhythm. Each pose is held for a period of 3-5 minutes, with the use of props. At the end of the surrendering physical practice, students will be taken into a deep rest and the class will end with simple pranayama and mantra. This practice is suitable for all levels, but please make instructor aware of any injuries or concerns.

Cost:
$26 per person
