The practice of yin yoga provides the perfect balance to your active (yang) yoga practices and your busy life. Focusing on long-held floor poses combined with breath work and meditation, yin yoga goes beneath the superficial muscles to target the dense connective tissues of the body – often in the hips, pelvis, and low back – which are difficult to open and can result in both limited flexibility and stagnant energy. This deep practice is gentle, yet intense, helping students not only to open the body, but also to cultivate the ability to observe and stay with sensation.
Afterwards, through guided imagery and techniques of systematic release, you’ll arrive at a state of profound physical and mental relaxation, penetrating the unconscious and subconscious self. It’s said that half an hour of Yoga Nidra can replace three hours of sleep. You’ll leave refreshed and ready for the world.
