Yin postures are held between 1-10 minutes; to allow for the reset. Props may or may not be used. Class will include breath, intention, yoga nidra or guided meditations aligned with the theme. Yin also serves as an excellent athlete recovery practice; allowing the athlete to stretch on their rest day, adopt a practice to target body areas that tighten during their sport and to stay connected and in tune with their internal systems and energy. The beauty of a yin practice is the ability to arrive in a pose (asana), find the first point of sensation and sit with the feelings in your breath, mind, body and heart. From there, the student can explore staying there or attaining deeper places within the pose. A customizable practice to suit one’s personal needs. Yin allows for a balance of new energy and spaciousness within one’s body, mind and heart while also setting a path for peacefulness in the present moment.
