Yin Yoga

Yin is for all levels of students from absolute beginners to advanced.

In Yin yoga we do not work on building muscular strength, we work on the joints of the body  (think.. hips, shoulders, and spine.) The aim of the practice is to cause a slight stress to connective tissue and help to increase mobility within the areas where we are working. The postures are predominately done in a supine position and require no muscular effort, however this does not mean the practice is easy. We hold the postures from 1-10 mins. If you are looking to increase your range of mobility and flexibility this is the practice for you. The practice is for all levels of students and is excellent for developing a deep mindful practice.
We run Yin classes every Monday and Friday evening 6:15 - 7:15pm
