Yin Yoga – 75 min class (60 min of asana practice and 15 min of guided deep relaxation meditation). Is the opposite of Vinyasa yoga (a yang or energetic practice) Yin is a restorative practice where we slow everything way down in an effort to find solace and peace in the mind and return to our natural state of being. In this natural state of being the body opens up the meridians or energy channels within the body clearing away old emotions, toxins or build up that are currently blocking the flow of chi or prana (the bodies vital life force). In this practice we tend to have long holds in a pose (sometimes up to 5 minutes) this gives time for the body to relax the muscle tissue providing the opportunity to bring the stretch into the connective tissue. We will end the practice with a 15 min guided, deep relaxation savasana.
