In this is a mini-workshop we’ll work with a balanced mix of postures, with breath awareness, holding 3-5 minutes and simply resting. This session is to gauge interest in a regular session on a Wednesday evening in the Spring 2024 term.
This pic (from the excellent Yoga Anatomy, Kaminoff and Matthews) in hatha style focuses on the muscles. Instead yin puts tendon, ligament, fascia under traction, tissues with little stretch but made more juicy by practice. Read more about yin yoga.
This class is not for everyone: the over stiff, the over-flexible (hypermobility), the can’t-be-still – there are other classes for you. But for people (probably) with yoga experience who want to stay in pose for the ooph of stretching and being with breath and body and get their dynamic practice elsewhere (or not at all)….food after.
