Yin Yoga

Yin is a very unique form of yoga asana practice that is commonly thought of as “newer”, when in fact many of the postures are as ancient as any other style.  Yin is a great compliment to all our other styles, as well as other vigorous exercises and sports (i.e. body-building, running, soccer, crossfit). Yin yoga is performed in a warm to cool environment between 70 – 85 F.  All postures are seated or on the floor and held for long durations, about 3 – 7 minutes depending on the pose. This is in order to access deeper connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and fascia which can attribute to about 40% of our overall flexibility.  It is also a very calming and soothing practice done either silent or with music. Great for stress reduction, peace of mind and tranquility after a long day, therapeutic to joints and internal organs.
