Yin yoga is often described as the other half of a yoga practice. In relation to Yoga, a Yang practice is a faster practice, affecting muscles, making them longer and stronger. A yin yoga practice is a slower, deeper practice affecting the connective tissues of the body. Yin Yoga utilizes fewer poses during the practice, holding the pose for up to 5 minutes, it is more along the lines of a gentle practice.

Mindful Living Support Group
As we move through our daily lives, we find numerous times where we are on “autopilot”. These are moments where our body is working and active, but our mind, is disengaged from what is happening. Ever get home at the end of the day and realize you don’t remember that last part of your drive? That is a basic example of how our body can complete some pretty involved tasks without our mind being actively involved.
In our group, we will work together to fully experience the present, good or bad, without judgement. BY focusing on living mindfully, we are able to make choices in our lives that move us toward our best self.
Mindful Movement Class
This class was created by a meshing of Yoga postures, Pilates, Meditation exercises, and Thich Nhat Hanh’s Ten Mindful Movements. Through practicing mindful movements with our bodies, we can reconnect the larger ethereal mind with our physical body. We are better able to become aware of how our thoughts impact our physical being which can often be our early warning system that something needs our attention.
We will practice breathing, moving our bodies through space and full range of motion, building physical strength that encourages growth in our emotional and mental strength, and building our skills to continue our practices outside of the class, in your everyday life. This class is open to all physical ability levels and modifications for all exercises will be provided to make this a safe, effective, appropriate class for all attendees. No footwear is needed, and clothing that allows for comfortable movement is recommended.
