Yin/Restore Yoga

​​Need to nurture your mind, body and spirit? ... grab the props and snuggle in. Want more depth in your poses, heal from and injury or surgery, or work deeper in connective tissue?... take the Yin approach! Both variations taught with every pose. Mix them up however you wish. We have everything you need... props, mats, blankets, eye pillows and more. Bring a friend or seven and get ready to relax and move inward! What exactly is Yin Yoga? Yin Yoga focuses on a release of connective tissues as we surrender into postures for longer periods of time to reach the deeper connective tissues of the joints, increasing the supply of fluids to them, making them less dense and enabling them to stretch. As a result, we become more flexible. Find comfort and contentment as we perform a complex practice of PNF stretching then passively held floor based poses.
