Focus is on learning alignment of basic yoga poses, awareness of the breath, meditation and relaxation. For students with little or no yoga experience or for those wishing to continue their yoga practice at a slower pace.
Yin Yoga consists of a series of long held, passive yoga poses that mainly work the lower parts of the body - hips, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, Yin cultivates awareness of inner silence.
DEEPENING YOUR PRACTICE:
For students interested in cultivating their home practice, deepening their level of awareness and sensitivity for the methodoloy of yoga poses, breathing and meditation practices and beginning the study of yogic philosophy.
Restorative yoga is an opportunity to turn inwards in a very supported, nurturing environment. Poses are supported with blankets, blocks and other assorted props and held for an extended period of time. This practice facilitates the gentle and powerful release of physical, mental and emotional tensions.
The focus for this class is on exploring the subtle alignment of the body and then moving into a variety of yoga poses from this place of inquiry.
