In this class "We don't use our body to get into a pose, we use the pose to get into our body."
You will begin the class with connection to breath, mind and body, releasing the stresses of the day. From there you will move into long holds of poses (Yin) specifically designed to, over time, change the state of fascia, connective tissue, ligaments and regain space and strength in the joints. Each class will end with a calming, supported restorative pose as savasana.
This class is a floor based, slow, contemplative practice that is suitable for all levels of yoga experience; variation options offered.
Benefits of this class may include:
- learning to surrender and soften to what feels unchangeable;
- bringing a calm, steadiness to body and mind;
- shifting your perspective;
- acceptance for where you're at in this present moment;
- developing a nurturing love for yourself;
Yin=yielding, allowing, nourishing.
"When I soften, open, accept, and receive, the flow of energy is immediate. Nothing more is needed to awaken completely than the intimate experience of now." ~Danna Faulds
