and blankets to eliminate unnecessary straining. This is a great practice to slow down and nurture your well being if you are recovering from an injury or chronic condition. You will be amazed at the benefits of this restorative yoga class from a therapeutic approach.

Yin yoga has many benefits other than just being a good balance to our active life styles. The YIN practice releases fascia and improves joint mobility allowing the flow of nutrients and energy through the body. Holding poses that gently lengthen the muscles and fascia helps to break up adhesions and applying mild stress to joints and connective tissue can increase their range of motion. Poses are held for an extended period of time allowing the body to release. As an added bonus, the YIN practice calms and balances the mind and body, increases circulation, improves flexibility and balances the internal organs.
These hour-long classes will incorporate both individual and group/family poses, breathwork, and mindfulness to benefit the whole family! Connect with one another and learn new ways to incorporate yoga into your everyday life. We recommend this class for families with children ages 4 and up.
Yoga BLISS class begins with 30 minutes of a slow flow to warm the body up, followed by 45 minutes of yin to stretch and surrender into the deepest layers of the body. You’ll leave feeling calm, peaceful and balanced.
