Yin Yoga - A Slow Meditative Practice For Overall Wellness
Yin Yoga - A Slow Meditative Practice For Overall Wellness- 4 Week May Series Interested in overall wellness and bringing balance into your life? Yin Yoga, a meditative, passive practice of deep release that focuses on using gravity, stillness, time and relatively little muscle activity may be just what you are looking for! Yin style of yoga helps to slow things down. Yin yoga can strengthen and smooth the connective tissue (ligaments, tendons and fascia) around muscles, joints and internal organs. It can also promote healthy blood flow to the joints and internal organs. Yin can also encourage the flow of energy through the body’s subtle energy channels that sometimes get blocked by holding onto thoughts and emotions that cause imbalances. A Yin practice can greatly improve your posture, joint health, range of motion, mobility and energy flow which are all essential for healthy aging and overall well being. No experience necessary for this series. Yin has 3 basic principles: Move into a posture and find your edge which is the point where you are feeling something; not too much and not too little. Find stillness in body and mind by meditating on your breath. Give your body and mind the time it needs for deep release and opening. Then if your body allows move a little deeper into your next edge. *Hands on assists, supportive therapeutic touch and props will be offered to help you benefit the most from each posture. 4 Week May Yin Series - Fridays 10:00- 11:15 am *Each week will be a full body practice with a focus on specific areas of the body.
