Melting Heart Pose

Yin Yoga

A Quiet, Contemplative Practice

Find balance in your body with Yin. 

Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things; yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect. In the body, the relatively stiff connective tissues are yin, while the more mobile and pliable muscles and blood are yang.

 Connective tissue – ligaments, tendons, joints, bones, and fascia, responds best to a slow, steady load.  This class will gently stretch connective tissue by holding each pose for 3-5 minutes.  This provides wonderful balance to a Yang yoga practice such as Vinyasa yoga which targets the muscles.

Energetically, Yin yoga improves the energy flow, enhancing the flow of chi in the organs. To be healthy, we need healthy organs as well as healthy muscles. Yin yoga also offers wonderful emotional and mental health benefits from stress release to easing anxiety after a busy day.

“I wanted to share how much Yin Yoga helped! I have slept so well since and all of the pain/stress I had been carrying around is drastically improved! I couldn’t believe what a difference one class made. Thank you!”
