YOGA IS MORE ABOUT UNDOING 
THAN DOING

A Life of Balance

Yin Yoga is the relaxed practice of floor postures with long holds for the safe expansion of the joints and connective tissues of the hips, low back, neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles. Yin is practiced in a normal temperature room which allows you to effectively create space in the connective tissues.  The postures taught in each practice counter the long hours of sitting in cars and at desks on computers, all part of our modern day world which leads to the shortening of muscles and connective tissues. Options and modifications are offered in each sessions for all levels.

 

This practice allows the nervous system time to unwind from the daily stresses of living that are held deep in the body.  Yin Yoga is complementary to vigorous  exercise and more active forms of yoga, especially beneficial for healing injuries.  Unplug from smartphones, computers and the busy details of life.  Take time for yourself to relax and breathe.
