Yin Yoga/Yoga Nidra
Yin yoga is often referred to by its nickname – the yoga of surrender. The Yin style asks students to let go… of everything – all the tension, tightness and resistance – and melt into long-held yoga poses. The poses are often held for much longer than poses in hatha or power sequences, with the goal of accessing deeper connective tissues as well as connecting with a more meditative state.
Yin yoga asks you to be completely still, completely passive, while stretching the boundaries of your capacity to be at ease within yourself – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Yin variations are fundamentally different due to the way they are approached – namely, without muscular engagement, without the energy of doing.
At the end of our Yin practice, a short Yoga Nidra follows.
A restorative yoga sequence typically involves poses, supported by props (bolsters, blankets, blocks) that allow you to completely relax and rest. Held for 5-10 minutes or more, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle back bends. The focus is on centering the breath and body, practicing stillness along with gentle movement, and holding the postures for extended periods. Restorative yoga focuses on what happens when you release tension in the body, in areas that have been tight and unopened. As a result of deep, elongated stretches, restorative yoga can actually increase flexibility. Enjoy this hour long class paired with Essential Oils, and move your body into a restful, restorative state, and alleviate the effects of stress in your life.
