Each class is different, and postures are sequenced in a way to help increase flexibility, strengthen and tone muscles, and allow you to tune into your body’s own rhythm.

Accessible for all levels, Yin is a mindful style of yoga that uses longer holds to access the fascia and connective tissue in the body. In Yin Yoga, postures are more passive asanas, generally held for 3-5 minutes, and mainly done on the floor. Yin yoga offers deeper access to the body, particularly the fascia. (Fascia is a structure of connective tissue that surrounds muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels, and nerves.) Blankets and blocks will be used in this class in order to increase or decrease the level of sensation felt in a pose. You will leave this class feeling balanced, centered and spacious.
Restorative Yoga sequences utilize only a few poses per class and are held passively for 5-10 minutes. Postures are supported by props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets that allow participants to rest and reset in deep relaxation. This class differs from Yin Yoga in that Yin is designed to stimulate and “exercise” joint tissue through modest tractions and compressions, whereas Restorative Yoga wants to take stress off the joints to induce a deep relaxation response for the nervous system. This class will leave you feeling refreshed and totally relaxed.
This grounding class will spend 30 minutes in a simple and slow flow sequence and end with a 30 minute yin practice. Yin yoga is a practice of long, passively held (3-5 minutes) postures. Through this release, we access and open the body’s deeper tissues and fascia. Pairing slow movement and yin together, we open the body gently and shift into a meditative and relaxing state – for both the body and the mind. Class is designed for all levels and all bodies. This class also leverages various props.
