Yin Yoga

Friday

9am-10:30am

This 90 minute beginners and all levels Yin Yoga is a slower-paced, more meditative yoga. In Yin yoga, the poses are held for a long period of time (typically three to five minutes or longer) to target the connective tissues (such as the ligaments) rather than focusing on the muscles. As a result, the asanas are more passive holds, with little muscular engagement. The yin poses, therefore, are passive and performed while seated or in a reclining position. The poses are held with the muscles fully relaxed, allowing time and gravity to deepen the stretch and target the fascia. Taught by Jaye Bryan Certified Teacher
