Candlelight Yin & Yang Yoga | Open


This class is taught by:

Kristen Nice

I began my relationship with Yoga in 2005 at a local YMCA while living in the Midwest. Originally looking for a way to de-stress, I soon realized the scope of potential lessons Yoga has to offer. In 2010, I felt an urge to deepen my commitment to my yoga practice and took a week-long retreat in Valle Crucis, NC. While at this retreat, the effects of taking time and space for oneself became clear, and I found a new stillness through my breath. I am certified as a RYT 200 in 2013 with Ashley Ludman and am currently in my second year of the 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training at Longwave Yoga in Wilmington, North Carolina where I live with my husband, Scott, and our dog, Della Lu. I have always traveled the creative path, spending time in painting, photography and jewelry as well as the physical expressions of dance, theatre, and even as a circus clown. In my life, I look to celebrate the details--the bits and pieces that make up our surroundings. As I express myself and share my discoveries through art and yoga, I hope to help others slow down and see the details that make up their lives.
"Find balance in the warm ambiance of candlelight in this Yin & Yang class. Yin & Yang Yoga is equal parts movement and stillness. The yang portion of this class focuses on intentional movement to gradually build heat through a gentle flow of postures in Sun Salutation. Once the body is warm, the slow-paced yin practice focuses on the breath while surrendering, yielding, and unraveling the connective tissues in the body through long, passive holds. Yin yoga is said to loosen energy blockages and therefore increase pranic flow through the body while aiding in better organ function, increased flexibility, and calms the nervous system. Postures are generally held for 3-5 minutes or more, stimulating the tendons, ligaments, cartilage and joints that normally are not reached in a more active style of asana practice.

Please inform instructor if you are dealing with injury. With the nature of the class, Yin Yoga may be unsafe for certain injuries.
