Complete with heated lavender eye pillows, essential oils, light touch Thai massage, relaxing music, and, of course, candlelight. This class will relax the mind, body, and soul. Yin Yoga focuses on the connective tissues of the body through postures that are held in stillness and mindful awareness for several minutes at a time. A perfect complement to more yang styles of exercise, Yin Yoga addresses tightness and toxin buildup in the joints and connective tissue through poses that are equally challenging for the mind and body. The result is not only more lubricated and flexible joints, but also a greater sense of balance, peace, and calm. Props make the practice accessible to people of all abilities.This is an all levels class, appropriate for beginners and advanced alike. *** Pre-registration recommended, as class size is kept smaller than other studio offerings.***
Stretch + Restore
Age, activity, and everyday life can lead to tightness in the body. This active stretching class targets primary muscle groups surrounding the hips, hamstrings and upper back. This class begins with warm-up movements to build heat and prepare the muscles for stretching. Most poses are done on the floor and held for 1-2 minutes. Holding poses for longer periods of time while focusing on the breath allows the body to fully relax and open. Class will close with an extra long Savasana for restoration and relaxation. Bolsters, straps, and blocks commonly used for support. Everyone can benefit from this class by finding relief from tightness or soreness in the body, while building flexibility.
