Flow & Yin Yoga

About half of class uses a breath-based flow to build strength and flexibility, challenging your balance and concentration, and harnessing that energy to promote inner stillness and peace. The other half of class finds you down on the mat holding yin poses for longer periods of time, targeting the connective tissues of the body to help release deeply stored tension. The two styles together are amazingly transformative.

Restorative & Yin Yoga Classes

These are calming gentle classes that is designed to reduce stress, stimulate restful sleep, restore the nervous system and enhance immunity.  The restorative postures use props such as blankets, blocks, bolsters and straps which allow the body to relax and open into a pose while be supported. 

 

The yin postures, also gentle and therapeutic, releases tension through the body in long holds, but without props, so the connective tissue is targeted, often resulting in a deep release of stress.
