Find balance in the warm ambiance of candlelight in this Yin class. Yin yoga is a slow-paced practice that 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.
