Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise, incorporating principles of traditional Chinese medicine with postures that are held for longer periods of time than in other yoga styles. For beginners, postures may be held for 45 seconds to two mins. More advanced practitioners may stay in one posture for 5 minutes or more. The sequences of postures are meant to stimulate the channels of the body. They’re known as meridians In Chinese medicine, and as nadis in hatha yoga.

Gentle Yoga Exercise Classes

These classes are applicable to all students but is particularly helpful to those dealing with lack of flexibility, recuperating from injury, or are new to the practice of Yoga. Instructors use props to protect sensitive areas to prevent injury or injury reoccurrence.  This restorative gentle class is an excellent opportunity to disconnect from the frenetic activity of daily life and let your speedometer return to 0 mph. It offers a welcome respite among all the turbulence of life and helps to prepare the mind and body for the inward stroke of meditation and deepened awareness. Moving slowly through the poses allows you to explore your mind and body at a steady and natural tempo.

Proper techniques and form results in “No Pain – Big Gain”. If it hurts you are going too far. Stretching incorrectly can actually do more harm than good.   Benefits of stretching include: improved range of motion and flexibility, improved balance and better posture, improved athletic performance, reduced risk of injury and increased muscle strength as well as reduced pain as part of a pain management program.
