Focusing on the Yin tissues in the body; connective, organ, joint, gland, this practice decompresses and realigns the physical body while training the mind to focus. This class presents an opportunity for the body to recover from the stresses of physical activity and/or sitting in a desk all day. The sequences of postures taught in this style are designed to release tension in the areas of hips, spine shoulder and neck. The postures themselves are held for 3-5 minutes to ensure the yin tissues are affected appropriately.
The body is taken through a sequence of poses in order to balance the Yin (see above) and Yang (muscle) tissues in the body. The challenges of modern life result in certain areas of the body needing a more Yin (deep relaxing and letting go) approach and other areas needing more Yang (activating, strengthening).
This is a classical approach to yoga that incorporates postures, breath work and relaxation of the mind and body. This class is open to all levels as it encourages an increase in flexibility and strength while relaxing the mind and body. All levels are welcome.
