This class offers traditional standing postures where muscles are involved, and quiet seated postures where muscles are relaxed, for a calm, and balancing experience.
Yin yoga was developed to penetrate deep into connective tissue expanding flexibility and aiding healing while stimulating the nadis or meridians (energy channels) to loosen energetic blockages and increase energy flow.
Yang yoga is the more traditional hatha or ashtanga based asana practice that develops muscular strength, stamina, and flexibility.
Yin/Yang Yoga is a class that balances traditional Yang yoga practice for the first half of the class – like Sun Salutations, standing postures, inversions, chest openers – with Yin yoga practices for the second half. This class can provide you with a practice that starts with energizing and uplifting yoga that evolves into a deep, introspective and quiet yoga that leaves you calm, centered, ready to absorb the benefits of a restful and replenishing sleep. A well rounded practice suitable for those with some yoga practice.
