Slow Vin/Yin Yoga
This practice is 1/2 Vinyasa, 1/2 Yin yoga and will be in a warm room. It will begin with a slower paced, meditative, Vinyasa flow. In the Vinyasa sequences (the yang aspect or solar) you will direct your focus inward taking your time to feel yourself internally aligning and "marinating" in the release of prana. Also available in the hot room!
In the Vinyasa sequences you will be led through mindful, fluid movements. As we delve into a deeper level of awareness we will take our practice down to the floor for a yin practice, targeting the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. By balancing the solar and the lunar - strength and receptivity - you will find clarity, wholeness and deep peace. Some yoga experience recommended.
Warm Yin Yang Yoga
In the heated room-Yin/Yang Yoga begins slowly, on the floor, accessing the pranic energy at the hips, pelvis and base of the spine. The yin approach is opposite of yang; rather than using muscular tension to go further, we first release deeply, using gentle but firm compression of the joints, relaxing whatever holds us back.
Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation beyond the muscular ("yang") tissues, and instead targets the connective ("yin") tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine and is heated around 85 degrees to help facilitate deep lengthening.
A slow and gentle practice that is perfect for beginners or anyone who wants to stretch and breathe in a calm environment. While exploring conscious movement and breath, you will not only improve overall strength and flexibility but also calm the mind attuning it to the inner light of awareness.
