During this class you will wake up, lengthen and strengthen your muscles, body and mind with a series of postures held passively for several minutes in order to access a safe and positive 'stress' on the deep layers of connective tissue in the body. Physically, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints, primarily between the navel and the knees. Energetically, Yin Yoga opens the body's meridian system, which enhances the body's energetic flow and supports emotional equilibrium. It emphasizes stillness and silence, and prepares both the body and the mind for a deeper experience in meditation.
Benefits of A Yin Yoga Practice:
Stillness: calms and balances the mind and body Stress and anxiety reduction Increased circulation Improved flexibility Fascial release Greater joint mobility Balance to the internal organs Improved flow of chi or prana through meridian stimulation
