Reset with Yin Yoga

Remobilize and strengthen your tissues as you melt away the mental and physical tensions that clutter the body in this class based on Yin Yoga. The focus of Yin Yoga is to exercise the deep connective tissues of the body in a series of passively held poses that leave you feeling balanced and open. To rejuvenate these tissues, the poses are held for longer periods of time which improve circulation and flexibility, release fascia and strengthen joints, and balance the nervous system. Please bring a water bottle, towel and yoga mat. Class is 10 weeks.
