Beginner Yin Yoga: These classes focus on holding gentle stretches for longer periods of time in order to gently stretch your connective tissues. Muscles generally take 30-60 seconds to stretch, and can stretch both statically (staying still) and dynamically (with gentle movement), but tissues like fascia, tendons and ligaments require longer, usually a minimum of 3 minutes, and are much safer when stretched statically (when still or with very slow, minor adjustments). Yin also has fantastic meditative and restorative qualities. When holding gentle stretches for longer, your mind and body are gently encouraged to relax. Many people find that they sleep much better after doing a Yin Yoga class. Students are always encouraged to listen to their bodies and only go to where they feel gentle sensations, NOT pain, when stretching, and to breathe. Self- adjustment as the pose time lengthens is always encouraged to make sure the student feels safe and is not stretching beyond their comfortable limits. These classes will use similar postures from week to week, but in different configurations to ensure the students get the most from their classes.
