Yin Yoga Mondays with Carole – Winter

February 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm
The three principles of Yin yoga are: 1) Come into an appropriate depth for your body in each pose; 2) Become still; 3) Hold for a long time. This can mean up to 3-5 minutes per pose. What is important is not what a pose looks like, but what it feels like… we use many props in Yin yoga to support our bodies in releasing into the connective tissues rather than specifically stretching the muscles. Yin yoga is not restorative yoga, in that we are still looking for some stress to the tissues in order to create optimal health. Yin targets mainly the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis and lower spine.
A slower moving class focusing on floor postures.  All levels welcome.
“We don’t use our bodies to get into the pose, we use the pose to get into the body”, according to my teacher, Bernie Clark.
