A Candlelit Yin Practice

Treat yourself to the deep tissue release of an extended yin sequence surrounded by the ambiance of candlelight while listening to and learning about the intentions behind the poses. We’ll start with a brief discussion of what Yin Yoga is and how it complements a regular Vinyasa practice, then settle in for 75 min of Yin practice! Room will be lightly heated so wear comfy clothes you can stretch in. We will not generate heat internally so feel free to wear extra layers of clothes and socks.

This workshop will take a deeper look at each pose of the Sun Salutations and help you gain a deeper access and understanding of the asanas. You will leave with a sun salutation that works for your flow!
