Look for this class to be held once a week on Thursdays in the fall of 2013.
Yin Yoga uses longer passively held postures to work the deep connective tissues of the body; the tendons, the ligaments and cartilage; areas that do not stretch like muscle; areas that are difficult to reach and open. These previously inaccessible areas are opened allowing prana or chi (life force) to flow freely resulting in a more supple and flexible body. Yin yoga encourages you to slow down, to pay attention and deepen the awareness between mind and body. It is truly a wonderful compliment all practices and styles of yoga, particularly the "yang" or more vigorous practices.
In this workshop you will be introduced to the theory of Yin Yoga; its benefits as well as its challenges. Staying in poses from anywhere from 3-5 minutes gives us a new edge to work with. "Yin yoga challenges you to sit in the pure presence of awareness" (Sarah Powers)
