This class is inspired by these words: "I do not understand the mystery of grace -- only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us.” - Anne Lamott⁠

This style of yoga is relatively still and focuses on passive poses (or relaxing the body and muscles) combined with holding poses longer while focusing breath, sensation, and internal movement.  Practice being with sustained intensity. Many of the poses are seated or lying on your back or stomach. Longer holds in the pose help facilitate the slow and safe opening of connective tissues like tendons and ligaments. Yin is a great counter balance to more active styles of yoga.
