What is Yin Yoga?

Yin yoga is a slow and deep practice. Expect to stay primarily on the floor. Poses are held for longer periods of time, allowing gravity to open and stretch joints and muscles in a gentle way. The sequence of the postures is meant to stimulate the channels of energy in the body, bringing focus to body awareness, stillness and peace. This class uses mindful relaxation within each posture to target the body’s connective tissue and promote the mobilization of fascia.

Two Questions we are asked all the time…

Q: Is this a good class for beginners?

A: Yes! This is a great class for new yogis and the experienced yogis alike. This is a fabulous class to enter yoga as each pose will be held for 1- 5 minutes. Enjoy relaxing time on your mat for your mind paired with a chance to explore the postures and stretches in your body.

Q: What props do I need?

A: Arrive in comfortable clothes. Bring a mat, if you do not have one we have rental mats available for $2. Additionally, props such as a bolster, block, strap or Yin blanket can be helpful to maximize comfort and alignment in each posture. Not sure how to use your props? Your instructor can assist you with comfortable and effective placement for optimal use. Don’t have props? Don’t worry, we have a supply on hand you are welcome to borrow during class.

We offer Yin classes on Mondays at 12pm, Thursdays at 8pm, Fridays at 5pm and a special Yin Soundbath on Sundays at 5pm. Incorporating a Yin class into your practice can help round out the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of your practice.
