Yin (Y)

Rooted in the Taoist tradition, yin yoga helps regulate the body’s flow of energy by focusing on the breath and holding poses longer.  Poses are held for 1 to 5 minutes by using props, making the practice accessible to people of all abilities. However, Yin yoga complements more vigorous activities such as flow yoga, running and cycling because connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady load, making the body a bit longer and stronger. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints, improve flexibility, and release myofascial tension as the poses stretch and exercise the bone and joint areas. Yin classes are held at room temperature, never hot or cold!

Ideal for: All levels/relaxation/flexibility

*warm (comfortable temperature)
