Candlelight Yin

Yin Yoga is based on the Taoist concept of yin & yang, opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things; yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect. Other yin-yang polarities include cold-hot, down-up, calm-excited. In the body, connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) are yin, while the more mobile and pliable muscles and blood are yang.

A Yin Yoga class consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body—the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. Poses are held for up to five minutes, sometimes longer.

YinNidra

An amazing combination of Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra!

Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep. It is a state of conscious Deep Sleep. in Yoga Nidra, you leave the Waking state, go past the Dreaming state, and go to Deep Sleep, while remaining awake. While Yoga Nidra is a state that is very relaxing, it is also used by Yogis/Yoginis to purify the Samskaras (deep impressions that are the driving force behind Karma).

Yinyasa

The Taoist concepts of Yin & Yang describe the two qualities or energies present within everything in the world around us from nature, the seasons, our food & our bodies. Yin qualities are internal, passive, cooling & downward while Yang is external, dynamic, warming & upward. Yin & Yang are relative to each other and one cannot exist without the other.

This class restores balance physically, mentally and emotionally. Class will begin with a flowing series of asana designed to invigorate the body and mind while creating heat. The remainder of class is spent within the style of Yin yoga Suitable for all levels.

Happy Hips

Our hips are home to the second chakra, which governs creativity, sexuality, flexibility and your ability to ‘go with the flow’. The hips embrace a great amount of our emotion. Think of the hips as a kind of ‘junk drawer’ for your feelings. When this emotion/energy starts to be released, the body and mind become more tranquil. All levels welcome!
