About The Event
In Yin Yoga, we hold postures for long periods of time with the muscles in a relaxed state while focusing on objective observation of body, breath and sensations. This stimulates the more dense deeper connective tissues of the body (such as fascia, ligaments, tendons), which are ultimately lengthened. There is deceased inflammation, better blood circulation and increased mobility which improves joint flexibility and calms the parasympathetic nervous system (our rest-and-digest response).
Holding postures allows us to observe the body’s sensations and create a profound connection with the inner workings of the body. By focusing on objective observation of body, breath and sensations we further develope deep resilience.
This is an amazing yoga class to help you release deep tension that causes your body to ache, improve mobility and increase calm & focus that you will notice in your daily life and all activities that you do. This practice is for everyone --you adapt it so it works for you!
We end each class with a guided deep relaxation experience.You are welcome to stay after class and enjoy a hot cup of tea while transitioning out of practice and into the world.
As a bonus gift for participating in this class you receive a gift code to receive Heather’s digital practice program which includes a guided audio tracks and practice supporting PDF.
