Yin postures are restorative in nature, and deep in quality. In yin yoga there is time…lots of time: time to explore sensations, time to learn the appropriate depth for you in each posture, time to develop the habits of attending, observing, and making appropriate decisions. Yin yoga explores the edges where resistance arises. This resistance may be physical, but there are other edges to become aware of as well—emotional and psychological edges are also to be noticed and honored.

On a physical level, yin yoga targets and affects our deepest layers: the connective tissues, which include our fascia, ligaments, joints, cartilage, and bones. On an energetic level, by engaging with the full spectrum of active and passive intensity, Yin Yoga inspires balance in body, mind, and spirit.

This 60-minute practice is welcome and encouraged to students of all experience; expect long holds and deep stretching.
