Yin is a passive, deep-stretching practice that allows more time for the body to settle into awareness and alignment. Yin is associated with the earth’s qualities like rootedness, patience, and stability. In this class, we will move through a series of Yin postures that will help us learn about our bodies and center us in the present. On the latter half of class, we will restore through even more passive and calming postures and end with a meditative Savasana. Each sequence or class will offer a different message within the philosophy of Yoga, and will guide you back to your life force energy or the breath.
This class will be an hour of movement linked with breath similar to Vinyasa flow. Yoga is also known as moving meditation, and this class will be just that as you are graciously guided through your practice. This class will allow you to take your time through your postures, pause in your loving awareness, and send yourself energy by expressing yourself through mindful movements and gestures. Sequences will be different each time and each experience will offer you something different energetically. Creative movement or dance will be encouraged as we create energy in motion in this class. You will experience Yoga through different philosophical and spiritual perceptions, alignment, flow, and breath work. You will experience yourself as you are in a warm, loving space. Come and show yourself gratitude and practice being here and being your energetic yourself.

Yin Yoga is a slower and more meditative practice intended to tune you into your body and your mind. While holding poses for several minutes, your connective tissues have the opportunity to stretch and you are able to go much deeper into a pose. This class is great for reducing stress and may be a better option for those with injuries.
Lay back, relax, and allow the sounds of the crystal singing bowls to wash over you in this 45 minute sound meditation. The powerful force of crystal singing bowls stir the senses, helping you move beyond the physical practice and tune into the deepest whispers of the soul.

Come feel what it is like to have every cell of the body respond to the enchanting tones that are produced around you and feel your stress melting away.
