Our Yin classes are designed for all yoga students from gentle-yoga lovers to hot-power-flow-super-yogis. Yin is a quieter yoga practice focusing on lengthening the connective tissues in the body — but don’t mistake it for being easy —Yin can be a powerful bookend to your more heated Yang yoga practices. Yin is also a restorative form of yoga, so those with limitations or healing injuries can still get the benefits of yoga but within the safe supported environment of Yin.
Chair yoga is one of the gentlest forms of yoga available. Poses are done seated on the chair or the chair is used for support during standing and balance poses. The chair allows for greater stability to help you feel supported and safe. Poses are modified so that even those with health restrictions, decreased range of motion, and physical challenges, can enjoy the benefits of a more traditional practice. This class will focus on breathing, balance, and building strength.
