This class is a meditative, reflective practice that requires receptivity with little pushing or strain. Yin Yoga applies long, passive holds (no standing poses) to deeply penetrate the body\'s bones and connective tissue. It raises one’s vitality, increases flexibility and mental energy, and is calming for the mind and spirit. The Yin style of practice targets the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis, lower belly and spine. The essence of Yin is yielding- learning how to let go of struggle and how to allow things to unfold naturally. Your Yang practice will be enhanced by balancing it with this contemplative style. Not suitable for beginners.
