Yin Yoga aims to support and maintain joint, bone and connective tissue health. It is meant to be practiced when your body is not warm, to target the deep tissue and fascial layers of the body. Poses are held anywhere from 2 – 5 min and the use of bolsters, blocks and blankets will help support your body and allow gravity to help you in increasing your mobility. Props will be provided and all levels are welcome.
Early Bird Yoga
This early morning yoga practice will be slow and gentle in honour of your body’s tight tissues in the morning. Movement, intention and a short meditation will be a great start to your day!
This style of yoga has movements form a flowing sequence in coordination with the breath. Every class is a little bit different. Expect to be challenged and inspired! Completion of the Beginner Yoga Series or some yoga experience will be an asset but is not required.
These classes will be accessible to all and concentrate on a well balanced combination of bodily postures, breathing techniques, and the occassional short meditation. The goal is to bring about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind.
This is the recommended class for those who have completed the Beginner Yoga Series, are just starting a yoga practice, or returning to one after a break.
