Vinyasa Turning Yin


This class is taught by:
This class will satisfy the Yin and the Yang in you: the part of you that wants to move will get 35 minutes of a sweet vinyasa flow, while the part of you that wants to be still will then get 35 minutes of long deep holds and the support of ground. This is the best of both worlds... you'll float out the door a new yogi.

**The Vinyasa style is born from the Ashtanga Yoga tradition, developed by the great Pattabhi Jois, whose teacher was the inimitable Krishnamacharya (“the father of modern yoga”). A typical Vinyasa class warms the body through sun salutations; flowing movements, using conscious breath as a metronome. As your teacher leads you through his or her own mapped-out, sequenced design, you have the opportunity to explore your presence in a variety of poses, some with longer holds than others. Some Vinyasa classes are themed toward a peak pose or class of poses, while some touch on all or a selection of the various classes of poses: standing poses, forward bending, backbending, twisting, hip and side openers, and inversions. Pranayama (breath work), meditation and bandha work (work with the 3 locks of the body) are also found tucked into many a Vinyasa class. Each class is a new experience.

**The Yin is a sweet and mellow style, and targets the fascia (connective tissue) of the body, as well as the nature of mind. Yin Yoga taps the knowledge of the subtle energy body, the channels of energy flow and the deeper holding patterns of our tissues. This practice will challenge you in an all new way. No standing poses, all floor work, loooooong holds, and a deep, deep journey into the depth of your true, still, breathing self.
