This class is designed to help build and maintain mobility and promote an overall sense of well-being. Instruction includes the use of props and/or modifications to account for specific needs and fitness levels.

Classes will begin with a few moments of centering and simple breathing exercises and conclude with a 5-10 minute final relaxation. Drop-ins welcome.
This contemplative practice utilizes modest floor poses to stimulate connective tissue giving particular focus to the hips, sacrum, low spine, and knees. Uniquely therapeutic and rehabilitative to these areas of the body, Yin Yoga is an excellent modality for providing a structural and emotional counterbalance to more muscular forms of asana and other "yang" activities.
This practice is appropriate for people who have resisted becoming active because of joint pain and is also ideal for athletes who experience joint pain caused by muscular overuse. The gentle but consistent stimulation to the connective tissues taught through Yin Yoga encourages long-term health and mobility of the joints, calms and recharges the nervous system, and naturally draws the mind inward into a relaxed, meditative state.
