Yin Yoga combines the traditional seated yogic postures with Chinese Taoist qi theory, BALANCING ENERGY FLOW THROUGH CHAKRAS AND MERIDIANS. This class will focus on long holds in a relaxed state to gently traction the bones of the legs, hips, and spine. Long holds of floor postures with relaxed muscles will restore elasticity to your fascia, ligaments, and tendons, restoring your joints to optimum health. This is particularly helpful for athletes, because most people don’t leave sports for muscle injury, but for joint or tendon reasons. Yin Yoga balances a lifestyle of vigorous movement with stillness, calming your nervous system. It is also beneficial for those who work at a desk, as Yin Yoga helps you sit comfortably for longer periods of time. You will be able to focus your awareness to areas that are out of balance, focusing and condensing qi and prana for healing.
Yin Flow is a complete practice combining slow mindful vinyasa (breath synchronized movement) with the gentle opening of yin postures…vinyasa targets muscle to lengthen and strengthen the body while yin targets connective tissue (ligaments, tendons) to increase flexibility and mobility of the joints…slow mindful movement combined with focused breathing leaves the body feeling refreshed and the mind calm…could not ask for a better way to start your day.

The Mysore Style of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is named after the city in India where the late Sri K. Pahttabhi Jois started this style of asana. New students begin the practice by learning the sun salutations and a few of the initial standing postures. As you begin to integrate the sequence into your memory and feel a sense of ease in the postures, we add additional poses. All students begin with the primary series, “yoga chikitsa,” which means yoga therapy. This practice heals and strengthens the body, preparing it for a deeper physical and meditative practice. Because the MYSORE STYLE IS TAUGHT IN AN INDIVIDUALISTIC MANNER, adjustments and modifications will help you progress in the safest and most appropriate way.
