Interested in healthy aging and overall wellness? Yin Yoga, a meditative, passive practice of deep release that focuses on using gravity, stillness, time and relatively little muscle activity may be just what you are looking for!

Yin style of yoga helps to strengthen, lengthen and smooth the connective tissue (ligaments, tendons and fascia) around muscles, joints and internal organs. It can also promote the healthy flow of energy through the body’s subtle energy channels that sometimes get blocked by holding onto thoughts and emotions that cause imbalances. A Yin practice can greatly improve your posture, joint health, range of motion, mobility and energy flow which are all essential for healthy aging and overall well-being.



Yin has 3 basic principles:
1. Move into a posture and find your edge which is the point where you are feeling something; not too much and not too little.
2. Find stillness in body and mind by meditating on your breath.
3. Give your body and mind the time it needs for deep release and opening. Then if your body
allows move a little deeper into your next edge.


Hands on assists, supportive therapeutic touch and props will be offered to help you benefit the most from each posture.


Each 75 minute practice will be a small group, no more than 7 participants, to ensure individual attention with hands on assists, supportive therapeutic touch and prop support. 

Since spots are limited please sign up early.
