Melt into dreamy spaciousness in this all-level class that begins with Yin Yoga and gradually unfurls into a deep Restorative Yoga practice. Yin Yoga uses gravity, the breath, and longer held poses (3-5 minutes each) to encourage our connective tissue to release tension as well as blocked/stored emotion. Restorative Yoga is a practice of deep relaxation that uses props such as blankets, bolsters, and blocks to help support the body in long-held gentle postures that encourage deep rest and release. Yin and Restorative are quiet, consensual conversations with the body. If at any time during class you find yourself forcing your body into a pose, you are no longer doing yin or restorative yoga. The key is to work with where your body is at any given moment, not to force it to be where it is not. Each class will offer modification options for each unique pose to help you meet your body where it is that day.
