Gratitude Yin Yoga
Join us for a community based, pay-as-you-feel yin yoga class! Open to anyone and everyone to enjoy. The practice of Yin yoga is very serene and calming. Postures are done in a mostly seat, or lying down position in a cool temperature - 80 degrees f. With soft calming music added, this class is a great way to slow down and give the nervous system some much need rest. We hope that you will join us and help support our most recent Yin YTT graduates. Props are available at the studio, however you may also wish to bring your own.
Yin is a very unique form of yoga asana practice that is commonly thought of as “newer”, when in fact many of the postures are as ancient as any other style. Yin is a great compliment to all our other styles, as well as other vigorous exercises and sports (i.e. body-building, running, soccer, crossfit). Yin yoga is performed in a warm to cool environment between 70 - 85 F. All postures are seated or on the floor and held for long durations, about 3 - 7 minutes depending on the pose. This is in order to access deeper connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and fascia which can attribute to about 40% of our overall flexibility. It is also a very calming and soothing practice done either silent or with music. Great for stress reduction, peace of mind and tranquility after a long day, therapeutic to joints and internal organs.
