Fundamentals
YinYoga

Yin Yoga (Mon 5:30 - 6:45 pm)  < NEW! Starts Sept 11
This deliciously meditative class epitomizes deep release and relaxation. Class begins with a series of gentle pranayam techniques, floor-based and gentle standing postures are supported, and poses are held between 3 - 5 minutes. In contrast to more active Yang muscle-focused practices, Yin Yoga focuses on lubricating the connective tissues of the body (ligaments, tendons, fascia) to bring new and unexpected openings. Clear energetic blocks, improve circulation, and promote growth and flexibility in this mellow yet challenging class, beneficial for beginners and athletes alike. This class pairs well and enriches any strong physical practice. All levels welcome. Runs Sept 11 - Oct 30 (no class 10/9).
