YIN – YIN is IN!
Yin Yoga is a passive style of yoga practice that uses longer holds in fully supported postures to bring release to connective tissue, specifically ligaments and tendons in the joints and spine. This practice is beneficial to all bodies and all levels, from those seeking ease and mobility due to tightness or chronic pain, as well as yogis looking to improve mobility and provide a complement to more Yang (active) styles of practice.
TRAUMA Sensitive Yoga
Yoga’s main purpose is to help people find peace of mind; however, most styles of mainstream yoga focus on fitness and body image and happen in less than peaceful environments. For people with a trauma or stress related condition, the thought of going to a class under these circumstances can be intimidating.
Private sessions for those who would like to practice yoga in a safe and supportive environment, where you can feel free to move at your own pace and to focus on those aspects of yoga most beneficial for your personal circumstances and special consideration is given to offering a safe experience through: the creation of a controlled environment, the use of neutral language, the practice of safe and accessible poses, and a compassionate understanding of what it means to be living with the symptoms of trauma and stress related conditions.
