May 2 - May 30
This 5 session class of Yin Yoga will focus on the wood element which corresponds to the springtime in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Yin yoga is a passive practice wherein the postures are done on the floor and held for longer periods of time in order to impact the energy lines found within the fascia or tissues of the body. There are 12 main energy lines or meridians according to Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM. These energy lines connect to the major organs and can become blocked thereby stagnating the energy or Qi flow within our bodies and most importantly to and from our organs. Yin Yoga constricts the tissues while in the postures and then upon release of the posture allows for the rush of fluids and oxygen hydrating the tissues and unblocking the meridians. Once the posture is released there is a resting or rebound period to allow for and to experience the flow of energy through the body. Its delicious! The more hydrated our body, the more fluid our movements; pain decreases and our range of motion can increase. The Wood element corresponds to Spring which corresponds to the liver and gallbladder channels and to the emotional energies of anger, frustration and irritation stored in the hips. While we will be focusing on hip work the practice will be well rounded to balance all the elements - earth, water, fire, metal and wood. Classes may be attended individually. 5 sessions prepaid: $90. Drop in: $20. No class cards. You may bring a check or cash the day of class or pay with a card on the class rate page.

This could include light cardio movements like marching in place, knee lifts, and arm circles. We'll also do some gentle stretches to loosen up any tight muscles. Next, we'll move into the main part of the workout. We'll use music with a steady beat to guide our movements. Instead of complicated choreography, we'll do simple movements that everyone can follow along with. Throughout the workout, I'll offer modifications to make the movements easier or more challenging depending on your fitness level. I'll also encourage you to listen to your body and take breaks as needed. After the main workout, we'll cool down with gentle stretching and breathing exercises. This will help lower our heart rates and prevent injury. Overall, this class is designed to be accessible to everyone, regardless of your fitness level or dance experience.

Yin & Sound Healing
$30 per person
We’ve got your back! As we get older, we become more aware of our lower backs...particularly when it’s unhappy. Physical activity, whether mild or strenuous, can exacerbate an unhappy back, which can then limit our activities and therefore affect how we function, or not function, in our daily life. Practicing Yin allows for the opportunity to compress and decompress the spine. Compression is often considered negative, but that’s not necessarily the case; in fact, when done safely, such as in a Yin pose, it provides an appropriate and positive level of stress to the tissues. Yin offers a wonderful combination of compression (for building bone strength and health) and stretching (or decompression, which helps connective tissue move optimally). In this thoughtfully sequenced class we will hold postures that stretch the connective tissue surrounding the spine to gently stress the back in a beneficial way and create ease of movement. We will also experience the vibrations and resonance created by the crystal singing bowls. The frequencies of sound produced by the bowls facilitate the movement of energy up and down the spine. This class is appropriate for all - whether your back is healthy or not. No matter what, we have your back!
