Yin Yoga Workshop

Date: Saturday 8/16/2008 from 1-4 PM

Come and enjoy the magic of Yin Yoga your body will feel like it never has before! While many “styles” of yoga practice promote strengthening and stretching of muscles, the complementary Yin style practice addresses the need for strength and elasticity in the connective tissues of the body (tendons, ligaments and fascia) for optimum health and functioning. Yin yoga asanas specifically target the deep connective tissues in the body. The yin areas of the body generally targeted in the practice are between the knees and navel; the lower body (especially in the legs, hips, pelvis and low back). In this gentle yet powerful workshop you will: Learn and experience the basic principles of Yin yoga; how to relax the muscles and enjoy holding postures for extended periods of time. Discover the joy of some of the most common poses and practice them in detail including their variations and options.
