This class is a great choice for beginners with physical limitations OR beginner to advanced practitioners who wish to explore a deeper energetic focus in their practice.
Yin Yoga is an all-level practice. It is accessible as an entry-level practice and is also an excellent adjunct to an active Yoga practice. Yin yoga applies healthy stress to joints and connective tissue. Connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, and fascia) respond to long, steady, and moderate loads of stress by lengthening and growing stronger. Yin postures focus on the joint and connective tissue in the low back, pelvis, and hips. For those with an established asana practice, yin postures provide space in which you can uncover subtle patterns of holding or clenching and then decide if they are helpful or necessary. Insights into these patterns can lead to greater freedom and flexibility in your physical practice, and in your life.
