Yin Yoga is a gentle form of yoga that emphasizes joint health, stretching and calming the mind/nerves.
On a physical level we take a posture and remain in that posture for 3 to 5 minutes allowing for the gentle release of the connective tissues of the body. As the connective tissues release, they provide greater flow of blood, oxygen and fluid to our joints. On a mind body level we practice dropping out of our heads and into our hearts, breathing in and out of our hearts, allowing ourselves to notice, just notice the experience. We use silent mantra to calm the mind and nerves. Welcoming the relaxation and allowing the yoga to do the work.
The practise of yoga can enhance flexibility, balance, resilience, agility, and
stamina, and it also can develop stillness of the mind and the ability to focus.
The Sanskrit word yoga means to join or to unite. As we engage with yoga, we
can create a growing sense of unity of body, mind, intellect, emotions, and spirit.
A little more alignment, a little less flow! Based on Anusara alignment principles, this practice will explore the shape of each pose as well as the action to bring your asana to life! More hands-on assists will be offered in these classes.
