Settle into stillness for an hour as we focus on deep stretching, breathing, and relaxation. The longer held poses of Yin yoga invite a sense of calm into the body and mind while simultaneously giving us an energetic boost. This style of yoga uses gravity to move beyond the muscles into our joints and connective tissues (fascia), improving our flexibility, mobility, and joint health while allowing us to move through life with more ease and grace. It is wonderful on its own or as a complement to an active yoga practice. (Please consider bringing any props such as blankets or blocks that you may want for your practice.)
