In a state of meditation, you can touch higher levels of awareness, you can be re-awakened to your divine nature, the pure love that you are. Every step you take is sacred; Every breath you breathe is holy. If you understand and practice these precepts, you will be mindful and your consciousness will shift from the finite to the infinite. You will become observant, detached, and free from judgement and begin to re-connect to the radiance and expansiveness of your true self. You will be filled with peace and love and begin to see all things through the eyes of compassion. Let us remember, we are ALL born to love and be loved!
In this class we will restore balance between the sun and moon energy of the body and mind and open up to our greatest strengths and possibilities. Class will begin with a warming, heart opening flow to get prana (breath energy) moving freely and the mind centered. We will then transition into Yin postures held longer to stretch the connective tissue helping us to relax, lengthen, and let go. Feel calm, peaceful, open, and balanced in this healing practice.
Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation beyond the muscular (“yang”) tissues, and instead targets the connective (“yin”) tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Suitable for all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga, or any more active forms of fitness, that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. It also is a very meditative practice, allowing us to connect to our breath, slow down the chatter in our minds, restoring peace and clarity. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, lower spine, and shoulders.
In this restorative yoga class, students will journey through a series of passive, meditative-type postures. Each asana will be held for several minutes to encourage a deeper sense of relaxation to the mind and muscles. Props, blankets and bolsters will be used as gentle support. Students will receive hands-on adjustments and use of aromatherapy products and lotions in a comfortably heated room. Restorative yoga is a nice complement to all yoga levels and lifestyles. Come prepared to be pampered and reawakened.
Explore the connectivity between mobility (the movement of joints), flexibility (the length of muscles), and the fascial system (the web of connective tissue that surrounds the muscles and joints). By combining exercises and postures that target all three of these systems simultaneously, we’ll increase and improve functional flexibility, overall joint health and range of motion, core stability and posture, and most importantly gain a heightened sense of body awareness. As we become more aware of how our bodies move and the interconnectedness of the muscles, joints, and tissue, we’ll begin to uncover imbalances that could be causing pain, discomfort, and overcompensation. Teach your body to move how it was made to: with balance, freedom, and ease. Transform your body, transform your practice, transform your life!
