Deeply Healing, Yin Yoga workshop.

In this 2 hour workshop we will move through a healing combination of Yin Yoga poses that will leave you feeling calm, balanced and refreshed. We will focus on seated and reclining poses throughout the workshop, offering a natural balance to the “Yang” of vinyasa and power yoga, as well as sports.

In Yin Yoga we hold poses in stillness for 1-5 minutes as we target the connective tissues such as ligaments, tendons and fascia; and we work into the major joints (hips and shoulders) of the body to increase mobility. This workshop is designed to reverse the effects of daily life, helping to improve your posture and energy levels. While holding the poses, we’ll work to calm the mind, relax the nervous system as we cultivate patience and positivity.

This practice will also facilitate the digestive process following your Thanksgiving feast. This workshop is open to yogis of all levels including beginners.
