By and large, the classes here are that calm, sneakily challenging variety of Vinyasa that you’ve come to expect. Every so often, though, we mix it up by slowing it down and shifting the perspective.
Yin is a special practice. If you know it, you may already know the value. If you’re new to it, it can take some getting used to. I’d go so far as to say there is an ART to getting the most out of a Yin practice.
In short, Yin is about long, passive holds — here, the holds are 3 minutes long. Because it relaxes your muscles, it gets into your fascia and connective tissue in a way no other practice can. It can address long-experienced fascial lesions, stored traumas and patterns.
It has the power to SHIFT and redirect you — I’d argue both physically and emotionally.
If you’re an air or fire type (as in, Type A), this practice can be more challenging — at least mentally — than the most advanced asana practice. I assure you, it’s worth it!!!
Yin offers a beautiful RESET. It’s a wonderful time to pause, look inward, and restore so that you might rebuild and reemerge. Here you’ll find a focus on low back and hips.
