YIN/YANG AND MINDFULNESS

Combining a Yin and a Yangpractice in one class, we explore the benefits gained from both; nourishing muscle tissue through dynamic and rhythmic movements, nourishing the deep connective tissue of the body (ligaments, bones, tendons, internal organs) by finding stillness and holding a pose for several minutes.

YIN

This includes the Ullaakut SaimaYin and NunaYin. Yin Yoga isa blissful practice that gives you plenty of time in each (mostly floor based) pose. Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and joints of the body that are not often exercised. Release stress and tightness in body and mind with our Yin classes.
