YIN YOGA FOR THE JOINTS

Let go of Thinking Mind.  Yin Yoga is often called a practice of stillness. The practice consists of floor postures with long holds that allow the connective tissues and joints time to appropriately expand. Relieve tension in the low back, neck, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles and wrists.  Those who attend this practice have described feeling more relaxed, having greater range of motion and feeling less distracted by their fleeting thoughts.    Yin Yoga is an ideal complement to vigorous forms of exercise like running, weight lifting, and spin classes/cycling.          Great for golfers, improve your swing.  All levels.

In this class, you will learn to listen to the valuable feedback of your body which assists in leading a healthy lifestyle,

while also remaining mindful in all your movements.

TRADITIONAL HATHA YOGA/GHOSH LINEAGE

The Ghosh system of yoga is known for improving the health and flexibility of the spine with each posture while cleansing the internal organs and glands with backbends, forward folds, twists, and stretching.  There is stillness between the postures, this is not a "Flow"or "Power Yoga" class. This is a full body practice with postures sequenced for the practitioner to build internal heat in a natural, progressive, and efficient way.The variety of standing postures increase stamina, strength and improve cardiovascular conditioning.

Mental and physical health are interrelated, and should be conditioned together. Traditional Hatha Yoga coordinates breathing and physical movement, improves focus and concentration, and help participants regain control of their body and mind.


Practitioners are encouraged to work at their own level respecting what is an appropriate movement for each practice.

Begin at any level, start where you are and experience BIG benefits.
