Most forms of yoga are dynamic, active practices designed to work only half of our body, the muscular “yang” tissue. Yin Yoga safely works the other half of the body, the deeper tissues of our ligaments, joints and fascial networks.
Yin is a slower, more introspective practice, and a great compliment to any yang activity.
The three principles of Yin are coming into the pose with ease, resolving to remain still, and holding the pose for time. Props are used in class to ensure safety and integrity while holding the poses.
Open to all levels, Yin is designed to cultivate deeper body awareness, reflection and introspection.
