Yin and Meditation


at YOGA SOUP (28 PARKER WAY SANTA BARBARA, California 93101)

This beginner-friendly class is gentle and slow-paced.

Yin Yoga targets our body’s connective tissue, improving the mobility and health of our joints in the hips, pelvis and spine. It is a helpful preparation for sitting meditation at the end of class, and both provide wonderful balancing and restorative qualities to our very “yang” lifestyles.

Music is not played during this class.
