Yin Yoga is an exploration of the cooler, quieter, softer side of yoga.
Classes are based on four principals:
- passive stretching
- held for time in stillness
- finding your edge
- developing awareness
The primary benefits of a regular yin practice:
- a deeper stretch that works to stress connective tissues and offer a greater, longer lasting mobility.
- helps our nervous system switch from sympathetic (flight or fight) response to para-sympathetic (rest and digest).
- help prana (life force energy) flow more easily through the meridians of our bodies and helps build ojas (vital essence).
This 90 minute workshop will be done in a warm room for maximum comfort. Yin yoga is an excellent addition to an athletes weekly regimen.
