Yin Yoga offers you the chance to be still, be present and work within while you breathe and stretch deeply creating more space in the mind and body.
Yin yoga is an invitation to slow down and welcome ease and compassion into our lives. This is a relatively passive practice, done mainly on the floor that focuses on the denser connective tissues (myofascia) of the body. Working the body in this way greatly benefits the health of the joints by creating and maintaining flexibility and mobility. Poses are typically held for 2-5 minutes. In addition to the physical benefits, Yin Yoga teaches how to observe the body’s movement of energy, changes in sensations, thought patterns and emotions. No matter your level of experience with yoga, a Yin practice is an opportunity to settle into and observe whatever may arise in the body and mind.
Pre- Registration is recommended for these classes.

This meditation series will include time for a self-led asana practice to prepare the body to sit for meditation. Afterwards, participants may join the meditation circle to learn and practice various meditation techniques, share experiences and ask questions.
We'll practice a different technique each month, as follows:
March 15: Holding Emotion: This technique involves summoning specific emotions to examine the physical manifestations of each. We will practice this technique in 3 rounds with discussion in between.
April 19: Japa Meditation: Feel the power of vibration as we unite our voices to chant ancient yogic mantras in the sanskrit language.
May 17: Vipassana: This very detailed, body-scan meditation will involve longer continuous sits. We will shine our awareness like a spotlight throughout the physical body scanning top to bottom on each side. We will sit for 20 minutes as we scan the right side, take a short break, and then spend the another 20 minutes on the left side.
June 21: Death Meditation: Discover the freedom of contemplating one's own death. This will be a longer meditation, and will be done lying in savasana, the corpse pose. We will slowly withdraw our consciousness inward and consider the transformation of the physical body back into the five great elements.
Students are welcome to attend either the asana practice, the meditation or both. Printed asana series will be available for those new to practicing without a teacher.
