- yin-yang yoga fusion

A well-rounded yoga practice is balanced by combining the Yang active aspect of our nature with our receptive Yin qualities, creating a deep integrated practice. Starting with pranayama (breath) and leading into Yang we will explore energizing and heat-building vinyasas (inspired by Vinyasa/Ashtanga yoga). We will then slip into Yin by exploring long slow holds (inspired by Hatha/Restorative yoga), releasing connective tissue, opening the joints and enhancing energy flow and distribution within the body. This class will have you sweating and relaxing. Experience the balance of both!
- yin yoga
Yin Yoga is a gentle, slow-moving practice that creates strength and flexibility by lengthening the connective tissue of the body. Connective tissue, also called fascia, is found everywhere in the body and is one of the most difficult tissues to stretch due to its plastic nature. However, supple fascia is vital to good health and general muscular condition. Yin Yoga is an excellent complement to all styles of yoga, and all physical activities or sports. People with tight hip flexors, hamstrings and who have lower back aches will benefit greatly from yin yoga because it will bring space and openness to these tight areas.

- meditation explored
Meditation is a simple and accessible way to drop beneath the surface of life (and thought) to the peace that underlies even the most stressful circumstances and busy lives. Meditation has been proven not just to alleviate anxiety but to support increased health – lowering blood pressure, improving immune function, and improving sleep. Join us as we explore varied and enjoyable methods to access internal peace. Over the weeks we will explore methods of basic pranayama (regulation and direction of the breath) and a different approach to meditation using various senses and abilities (sight, sound, taste, visualization, inquiry, etc.). The purpose of the course is to provide you with a wide breadth of possible approaches so you can discover through your own experience in class what works for you and then build a custom home practice from that. The internal silence that waits with endless patience is always less than one breath away. ) Pre-registered class sign-up
