Yin, Yin Flow and Yin/Yang Yoga
Yin Yoga focuses on the slow, patient, opening of the fascial layer of the body. The fascia is the connective tissue (shrink wrap) that underlies the skin, wraps the muscles, and holds the bones together. It is the conduit for the meridians of the body through which energy flows. Over time chronic tightness of this layer causes stiffness and inflexibility,restricting mobility and energy flow. Fascia responds differently than muscle and requires this slow approach to facilitate opening. This is a deeply meditative practice. No prior yoga experience required.
Yin Flow combines Yin and Vinyasa yoga. We begin with a 45-minute basic, but effective, Vinyasa Flow and close the practice with 45 minutes of deep and meditative yin work. This class is appropriate for Vinyasa practitioners of all levels who are interested in the additional benefits of Yin opening, without forgoing the opportunity to move dynamically.
Yin/Yang Yoga combines the surrender component of a Yin practice that targets the fascial layer of the body that over time may stiffen and restrict both movement and energy flow, with a Yang practice that intelligently targets muscular action in important and potentially vulnerable joints to develop strength, stability, coordination and mobility.
In the first half of class, we will isolate, activate, mobilize and integrate these muscular actions isometrically, concentrically and eccentrically. And then slowly, mindfully release the fascial (or shrink wrap) layer of the body as we surrender and rest in the second half of class. Both components of class emphasize breath awareness and presence.
