Class Description: Yin/Restorative
Our Yin/Restorative class is a great way to balance out the ‘yang’ in your life. Even our most active and physical practitioners enjoy the idea of slowing down for a little while.
In Yin, the aim of the poses is to relax the tissue surrounding the muscles. Therefore poses are held for several minutes and you are encouraged to be still. You might not find this very relaxing, but you will eventually find relief! Many shapes have different names from what you have learned in, say, a vinyasa or hatha class. Make sure you check with your doctor if you have any injuries before embarking on this class.
The Restorative poses are there to calm and support you. Your teacher will offer many ways to use bolsters, blankets, and blocks to ease tension and any impulse to do work. This is a meditative, revitalizing practice. This is a great send off to any weekend to prepare you mentally for your work week. See our schedule here.
