Yin Yoga (9-10am PT/11-noon CT) is a contemplative practice with longer held static poses. Yin yoga targets the connective tissues, the ligaments, joints, bones and deep fascia (Fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber and muscle in place.), rather than working the muscles, which are the focus of Yang Yoga which is moving and active. Energetically, Yin improves energy flow throughout the body. The longer holds bring a contemplative/ meditative emphasis to the practice which bolsters our emotional and mental health.
Meditation/ Yoga Nidra (10-10:30am PT/12-12:30 CT) is the practice of deep and purposeful rest while experiencing a guided meditation through body awareness.
We spend much of our time in light and sound, forcing the body into wakefulness and the fight or flight response, where we are always on alert, doing, thinking, and overthinking. Meditation/ Yoga Nidra has been found to soothe the nervous system, which results in physical, mental, and emotional relaxation in our body.Beginners welcome. Physical limitations can be accommodated.
