YINSPIRATION

Tune out to tune "yin"! This class is beginner friendly! 

In a Yin practice, we hold some poses for a minimum of 3 minutes and other poses for a maximum of 13 minutes. Yin poses’ long holds offer a chance to marinate in stillness. When you allow yourself to stay present and experience the shifts that occur while holding a yin posture, time opens up. Deadlines, commitments, pressing matters, and to-do lists fade to the background, leaving space for rest and renewal. Our body’s tissues can be revived by a good long soak the same way that an old, stiff sponge can. As you hold a yin pose, the subtle release that takes you deeper into the pose is the tissues lengthening, hydrating, and becoming more pliable. If you pay close attention, you can sense the tissues being stretched, squeezed, twisted, and compressed. A yin practice can leave you feeling as though you’ve had a massage. Yin teaches us how to be gentle, patient, and nonreactive.  Surrender is a common theme in yin yoga, and giving up the need to control a situation is a lesson that we can carry with us into our day-to-day lives. The ability to adapt to the ups and downs of life and to manage change with grace can lessen our predisposition to stress.

This class is NOT heated. 

Bring your yoga mat, and we will provide blocks & bolsters. Yoga towel is optional. Yin is a cooling practice, so recommended attire is t-shirts or long sleeve shirts. For bottoms, we suggest shorts, full length joggers or yoga pants. Some people even prefer to keep their socks on.
