Yin Yoga

This style of yoga targets the deep connective tissues of the body and the fascia that covers the body. Yin Yoga will help regulate the flow of energy in the body. In a Yin Yoga class you will be encouraged to relax deeply into the posture, soften the muscle and move closer to the bone.

This is a meditative class, holding postures in stillness for up to 10 minutes. Don't worry, the postures are passive and the emphasis is on relaxing.

Perfect for all levels of experience. If you are always drawn to a powerful and physical class (considered Yang), try this class to compliment and improve your Yang practice.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga teaches you to relax - completely. Props are used to totally support your body so you can feel a deep release. Poses in this class are often held for as long as 15 minutes, drifting off is possible and acceptable.
