Yin Yoga is a simple, quiet, in-drawn practice that uses steady, long-held postures that benefit your “yin,” connective tissues, such as the fascia, ligaments, tendons, joints, and bones. Poses are held 3 to 5 minutes each with all muscles relaxed and released.
Yin Yoga is a more meditative approach to yoga, that aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence. It can be practiced by everybody and will complement an already active life or help those who feel distracted by “mind chatter”.
This practice calms the mind and nervous system, reduces stress and anxiety, increases circulation, improves flexibility and joint mobility, balances the internal organs and improves the flow of chi or prana through meridian stimulation.
Therapeutic Yoga is a particularly effective practice for those recovering from, or living with, injury or illness. The focus of this class will be to help decrease pain, fatigue, insomnia, stress, and negative emotional feelings due to illness. Pranayama (breath work), restorative poses, accu-pressure points, visualizations, hands-on healing and essential oils will be combined in class in order to achieve balance in your body, mind and spirit. If you are not suffering from illness but just want to relax you are also welcomed to come!
Autumn Sound Healing Meditation
Thurs. Oct. 18
Tap into the energy of Autumn and reflect upon your own harvest - what you’ve taken in and what you need to let go of, cultivating a healthy balance to bring the ultimate success you need for an abundant season ahead.
You will be guided through a journey using the tools of breath, mantra, sound and visualization to enter an inner space of peace. To facilitate this process you will be nurtured by the deeply soothing sounds and vibration of the Tibetan Singing Bowls.
Let go, relax, renew.
