A restorative class that targets the connective tissues, ligaments and joints in the body. Yin is not heated & practiced at room temperature where postures (mostly floor based) are held for longer, 3-5 mins & integrating mindfulness, making this a deep nourishing meditative practice.
Yin accesses the deep stale energy stored in the body that over time has become stagnant due to immobile joints.
You will be encouraged to focus deep into your body and feel the different type of sensations of connective tissue stretching. This practice is also great for people who have injuries and want to be careful but still stay connected to a physical practice.
