What is Yin Yoga?

Yin yoga is a practice that is the perfect balance to other yoga practices or more yang-like exercises. A sustained practice of Yin yoga has brought relief to many on a physical level and it is also a complete and holistic practice that promotes the balance and healing of our integrated mind, body and spirit.

Are there any areas in your body where you just don’t feel at ease no matter how much exercise or stretching you do? Do you have chronic discomfort or labored mobility? This wonderful yoga practice targets deep connective tissue in a way that no other practice does. Research shows that the symptoms of pain, inflammation, and stiffness are often a result of obstructions in our deep connective tissues. As the saying goes “the issues are in our tissues”! Even if you feel well, you can benefit from this Yin practice that promotes the optimal wellness of our whole being!

What is Restorative Yoga?

You will ease yourself into deep relaxation.  Using pillows, cushions, blankets and props you will melt into the poses and be gently held.  Guided visualizations, gentle meditation and reflection on finding peace within yourself will help remember the real you and what’s really important.Restorative Yoga is perfect for those who are stressed, in need of peaceful meditation, and for those who do yoga on a regular basis, it is a chance to go much deeper in their stretching.  This class will change the way you do yoga, teaching you when to let go and just allow yourself to be held in a pose. In deep meditation, the world slows down and you take a break from everyday concerns. Yoga switches you out of flight or fight and into the relaxation response - your body's natural healing state where revitalization and regeneration naturally occur. This practice suspends your mind between being awake and asleep where you get the ultimate power nap. Research shows that regular practice of restorative yoga can strengthen the immune system, regulate blood pressure, aids insomnia, and balances the nervous and endocrine systems.There is nothing for you to do but lie down and relax. Adding aromatherapy ensures that whatever your experience, the practice will still work - even if you fall asleep. The deepest layers of your Self are always receptive and will experience the full journey.
