Yin Yoga

90 minutes

Any complete yoga practice is comprised of both yin and yang elements. On the one hand, we want to strengthen and lengthen at the muscular level. This is the yang side of our practice. On the other hand, we want to gain access to deep connective tissue — our ligaments, tendons, and fascia — in order to open up channels for the free flow of life force, or prana. This is the yin side of our practice, and its meditative quality fosters the development of patience, ease, and calm. In this class, we hold seated and supine poses for about five minutes each. During this time, the teacher will offer alignment instructions and refinement cues, followed by a brief reading or poem, and then we will spend about two minutes in sweet silence during which time each practitioner is encouraged to find his or her own comfort on the mat. Suitable for all levels.
