Yin yoga targets the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues - ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body - rather than the muscles (which are the physical focus of Yang yoga practices). As we practice yin, we learn to listen to our bodies, slowing everything down. We learn to recognize our thoughts, to see them coming in and out of our mind, and to experience and digest them, instead of having them race through our mind like an escaped rollercoaster. Yin is for everyone.
SLOW FLOW YOGA
In Slow Flow, the pace is slower than your power/flow class. The pace is meditative, emphasizing peace and calm in body and mind. You will be holding poses longer, taking several rounds of breath in each pose, instead of moving to each breath. Slow Flow allows you to find the space between poses while still retaining the gentle rhythm of a power/flow class.
