Yin Yoga

Mon, Weds, 7:00 AM

Cost: $8/class $30 for 1 month

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time—five minutes or more per pose is typical. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga that draws heavily from taoist traditions, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.

This class makes use of blocks, straps, blankets, bolsters and the wall to make poses accessible to everyone.
