About The Event

So why Yin Yoga?

Yin Yoga is amazing.  It slowly releases the tightness in our bodies through its focused stretches and soothes our nervous systems with its meditative quality.  It's used to stimulate the meridian lines of Traditional Chinese Medicine, it mildly streses joints (in a good way!) and it adds a tensile load to connective tissue (through its long holds).  This applied and targeted tensile load "triggers a complex cellular process that results in an adaptation."  

In Yin, we're ultimately trying to repattern fascial matrices and healthily stress connective tissues in order to strengthen them and make them more adaptable to change and the pressures of eveyday life.

So, Yin does a lot of good for the body and the mind. "Optimal variability in human movement is a characteristic of healthy functioning."  So why not bring some benefits of variable movement into our lives.

Yin Yoga provides a safe place for your mind and body to enter into and consequently gain greater personal growth.
