Bridge the gap between an active life and a meditative life.
Join us as we practice stillness in yoga. Discover the benefits of longer held postures as your mind begins to quieten to allow greater awareness and understanding of your inner self to emerge. Yin yoga can be described as a stabilizing, de-stressing, feminine and contemplative practice. Yin yoga is based on the Taoist concepts of balancing the Yin and the Yang, the opposite and complementary principles in nature. With our busy lifestyles our bodies tighten up from mental tension and cause all sorts of ailments and lack of mobility leading to discomfort and pain. Yin yoga postures give an opportunity for deeper tissues, such as connective and fascia, to release long held tensions allowing for the Prana (life force) to flow more easily through previously blocked areas increasing overall energy and well-being. Yin yoga helps you to play your edges, unwind, breathe more consciously and turn inward. There is less instruction to listen to, much to discover within yourself and more peace to be found. It is a wonderful compliment to any other form of yoga or any other activity in your life.
The benefits of Yin yoga:
• Calming and balancing to the mind and body
• Regulates energy, balances hormones, provides a deeper relaxation
• Increases mobility and improves lubrication, protection and flexibility of joints
• Releases fascia throughout the body
• Lowers stress levels, reduces anxiety, tmp and migraines
• Greater stamina, better ability to sit through meditation
