Yin Yoga:  beginner and up

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with mostly seated or supine poses that are held for comparatively long periods of time, up to 5 minutes per pose is typical.  Yin Yoga poses apply moderaste stress to the connective tissues-the tendons, fascia, and ligaments-with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.

Yin Yoga poses are also designed to improve the flow of qi, the subtle energy said in Chinese medicine to run throughout the

meridian pathways of the body.  Improved flow of qi is hypothesized to improve overall health, immunity, and emotional well-being.  Yin Yoga is not intended as a complete practice in itself, but rather as a complementary practice to balance the effects of more active forms of yoga and exercise.  Modifications for every level are available using props like bolsters and blankets during class.

Yin yoga opens the deep connective tissues and fascia throughout your body with static, supported poses typically done on the floor. Every pose will be a journey to explore, while you will be moving into a deeper state of surrender and mind-body potential.

Meditation, mantra, mudra:  for everyone

This class will focus primarily on "other" aspects of Yoga!  Though we will begin the morning with Sun Salutations to welcome the day and open the body, we will move into an exploration of Meditation (frequently using the Radiance Sutras as a guide), Mantra (the exploration of repetitive resonant phrases designed to attune one to the sweetness and joy in life and to foster wellness and healing through connection with our own voices) and Mudra: a science of gestural expression designed to align psychology and physiology in profound way.  Pranayama (breathing techniques) will frequently accompany these explorations.
