Yin & Restorative yoga begins with Yin postures designed to encourage release in the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and spine. In this practice, the muscles are relaxed, allowing for a gentle release in the joints and connective tissue. Each Yin pose is held for 3-5 minutes to stimulate the flow of synovial fluid, a natural lubricant for the joints and connective tissue. This class concludes with gentle restorative poses that bring balance to the nervous system and allow for deep rest. Yin & Restorative yoga is the perfect compliment to more active styles of yoga as it works specifically with letting go. This class is open to all levels.
