The yin side of yoga is a way to pause life and sink deeply into relaxation and into our subtle mind. Holding grounding postures to gently stretch and rehabilitate the connective tissues in our joints with the help of blocks and blankets. This is the perfect amount of rest your body needs after a busy week, or as an accompaniment to a more vigorous (yang) practice.

- Begin with a breathing exercise to center the mind and body.
- Lead into postures that work various parts of the body deepening into connective tissues (Postures are held generally 3 - 5 minutes each with a gentle transition)
-Long savasana about 10 min, generally with a guided meditation.
-Closing with breath/aum

Class may incorporate essential oils either diffusing or during savasana, or both. *Please inform instructor prior if you have a sensitivity to scented oils.
