YIN YOGA . Sunday 8:30 am - 9:45 am
Reconnect to your breath and body's energy in this quiet, restorative class where we explore relaxing into postures for extended periods of time...anywhere from 2-7 minutes per posture. Based on meridian theory, Yin Yoga helps open up the nadis (energy pathways of the body) in passive stretches that allow our prana life-force energy to flow more freely.
