Yin & Yang Yoga
Yin Yang Yoga restores balance within the body by tending to the divine masculine and feminine energies that reside within each person. The asana practice opens up the energy channels within the body so that the practitioner can cultivate heart centered awareness and nourish the mind body connection. The class will begin with a warm up and then transition into a more active practice requiring muscle engagement and physical body awareness. The second half of the class will explore the subtle body with a yin practice that requires falling into the art of surrender and letting go. The class, from start to finish, endeavors to restore balance between the right and left sides of the body and mind.
This dynamic class focuses on mindful movement linked with breath. The class will include Sun Salutations, Standing poses, seated poses, and restorative poses. Appropriate for new students and continuing students. Variations of poses as well as modifications and hands-on adjustments(if desired) will be offered to ensure your practice fits you where your body is today.
Yoga is a system of postures and poses that have long been practiced in the East as a way of life as well as a process to address both physical and mental well being. Gentle Yoga offers softer and slower processes. No prior experience necessary.
