Hectic lives, active yoga, and intense workouts are all heating to the body (yang in nature) and are balanced by activities that are cooling to the body (yin in nature). Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga are considered yin in nature because they slow, cool, and lengthen the body.
This 90-minute class will start with Yin Yoga poses supported by props and move into full Restorative Yoga poses. While Yin Yoga can be challenging due to sensations created in the body, the use of props can soften or deepen the stretch experienced. The accompanying practice of breath work and surrender during poses can lead to release of stored emotions and cultivate inner peace while improving joint health and flexibility. Restorative Yoga poses are fully supported by props to allow and encourage the body to release mind-body tension. The result can be a deep sense of rest and relaxation and can lead to better management of stress.
