Yin Yoga - Drop In/Member Class

The practice of Yin Yoga is often considered “yoga for the joints – not the muscles”. It targets the connective tissues of the body (tendons, fascia and ligaments) and focuses on creating a release by holding poses for longer periods of time. Yin Yoga poses are generally more passive and meditative in comparison to flow classes, providing a calming and balancing of the mind while increasing the mobility and flexibility of the body.
* Dress warm or bring layers as yin is not as heat generating as flow classes
