"Yin Yoga -

longer, more passive holding of yoga poses can condition you to sit longer, and meditate more comfortably"

Paul Grilley

 

 
 
Curious what "YIN" is?
 
 

 

Whether you are a runner, a biker, a swimmer, physically active or a couch potato...Yin Yoga is the perfect compliment and balance to our more active, "yang" lifestyle.

Years of a dedicated asana practice will make anyone healthier, stronger, and more flexible, but at some point the muscles will have reached their limit of flexibility. New depths in postures, deeper ranges of motion, or an increased flow of energy may only be achievable by focusing on the deeper tissues of the body.

This workshop will consist of a series of quiet Yin sequences where seated postures are held to stimulate and strengthen the connective tissue and the joints, and to clear away blockages along the meridian lines (energy lines) relating to the major organs. Emphasizing longer, slower floor postures that target the hips, thighs, lower spine, and the meridians that run through them (similar to the effects of acupuncture), one practices Yin poses with the knowledge that you are reaching into the connective tissues of your body - a place that requires patience to open. As a result, dense, fibrous tissue becomes longer and stronger, renewing the body's structure and integrity.
