We will be melting into the perfect blend of yin and restorative yoga paired with breath to activate your parasympathetic nervous system to help counteract all that stress so that you are finally able to catch some zzzz’s.

Warm Yin, Tuesdays, 7 pm. Yin is both a gentle and encompassing yoga practice that is designed to literally open the body, peeling away layers of tension, stress and injury that reside within. A gentle approach is used to stretch the body, using longer holds to get beyond the muscle tissue into the connective tissue, the fascia of the body. All poses are seated or reclined. The slower nature of this practice is often described as a “moving meditation”. A great compliment to your regular practice. Suitable for all levels.
