In Deep Stretch Yin Yoga you will be guided into sustained stretching poses (yin poses), designed to support and preserve joint, bone and connective tissue health. You will be encouraged to relax your body and breath to allow the pull of gravity to assist you in the stretches. Yin yoga will help improve your overall mobility and range of motion, and specifically the hips, pelvis and spine.
On an energetic level, this class enhances the flow of prana (life force) in the tissues surrounding the joints, where energy often stagnates. The enhanced energy flow supports optimum organ and immune function and health and emotional wellbeing. It has been likened to needle-less acupuncture!
