YIN/DAOIST YANG YOGA

Yin consists of long held poses of 3 or more minutes, that mainly target the spine, lower back, hips and knees. Most of the poses are similar to traditional seated yoga postures, however, Yin Yoga targets the joints and connective tissue rather than the muscles. Since the poses are longer in duration, it can be more difficult to stay present or be mindful. This is why Yin Yoga is often described as challenging, like a meditation.

There will be an OPTION to wake up your body with a short Daoist-centered Yang sequence which will follow the regular series of focused yin postures. This will ultimately help to balance the flow of energy in your body. Register by Friday, January 10 to receive this low price.
