YIN AND RESTORATIVE YOGA

EVERY THURSDAY 4 WKS ONLY – CLOSED NOV 26 FOR THANKSGIVING
NOV 5 - DEC 3 | 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
INDOORS AT THE J - LIMITED TO 14 PARTICIPANTS
Member $100 | Non-Member $116

Yin & Restorative offers the benefits of yin yoga and restorative yoga. Combining these two styles together will lead you to a calmed mind, body, and nervous system. Each class starts with the practice of yin, a form of stretching that brings stimulation to the fascia and joints of the body through holding postures and utilizing props to help hold the body in an intense yet stable position. The latter portion of the class will integrate restorative yoga, a practice in which the body is placed in comfortable and fully supported postures so the nervous system can fully open and relax. Our hope is students leave class feeling relaxed and restored. Prop suggestions: yoga mat, yoga blocks (2-4 blocks suggested), yoga, blanket or regular blanket (1 or 2), one yoga strap if you don’t have one bring a belt or scarf, one yoga bolster- if you don’t have one bring a pillow or two.
