Whether you are nearing the end of the 30 day yoga challenge or simply looking to relax, join us for a blissful evening of yin yoga and restorative yoga! We will begin with a yin practice to lengthen and open the body, move into restorative postures to deeply calm and decompress both the body and mind, and will end with a deep relaxation/meditation that will leave you feeling renewed!
This workshop will allow beginners to be introduced to each practice and will allow advanced practitioners to deepen their current practice. Below are descriptions of both the yin and restorative yoga practices.
Hope to see you there!
The essence of Yin Yoga is surrender. Yin focuses on postures that lengthen the muscles surrounding the hips, pelvis, and lower back. Students typically hold these postures for 3-10 minutes per side in order to lengthen the connective tissue that surrounds the joints and increase its elasticity. The elasticity of our connective tissue diminishes with physical activity and aging, which makes Yin essential for injury prevention and joint health. Yin Yoga restores energy and calms the nervous system.
Restorative Yoga is the application of Yoga practice using props and postures held for longer periods of time to initiate deep relaxation of the body, mind and spirit. Restorative Yoga is beneficial to balance a more active practice or decompress after a stressful day. It is also a wonderful practice for those recovering from an injury or anyone experiencing pain or discomfort. This practice facilitates deep relaxation and allows the body to heal.
