YIN DEEP STRETCH
Yin Yoga is yoga for the joints. It is a great complement to the active yang yoga practices. Our joints become stiff and rigid as we age if we do not take proper care. It will affect our mobility, and cause injury and stress to the body. Yin Yoga safely stresses the deep connective tissues in the joints in a gentle way, as poses are held for longer periods. This builds healthy blood flow, replenishing new growth of healthy connective tissue in the joints. The muscles relax, while the connective tissue does all of the work. This class is highly encouraged for all levels, due to the importance of joint health for all styles of yoga. It is relaxing, but powerful at the same time.
