RESTORATIVE YIN YOGA
Restorative Yin Yoga is a slower-paced, more meditative version of the popular physical and spiritual discipline of yoga. In Yin yoga, the poses are held for a long period of time (typically three to five minutes or longer) to target the connective tissues (such as the ligaments) rather than focusing on the muscles. As a result, the asanas are more passive holds, with little muscular engagement.
A yoga class described as ‘Hatha’ will typically involve a set of physical postures and breathing techniques, practiced more slowly and with more static posture holds than perhaps a Vinyasa flow or Ashtanga class.
In this class, we will use the asanas to create a strong practice to build stamina and strength.
