Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time. Easing into our bodies and exploring hidden tensions, We create space for Opening, and Movement.
Yin encourages Stillness, Awareness and Inner Truth. Allowing the body to relax and find its place within the pose, we invite expansion and encourage mind/body communication.
"Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality" -Michael Sexton

Pain Body Release Techniques
Utilizing a LaCross Ball and a Yoga Block. Create time and space to move old energy. The cells of our bodies carry memories, these memories carry a frequency and this frequency attracts more of the same frequency. Many of us are walking around with subtle pain throughout our bodies, by taking the time to work with the deep connective, fascial tissues of the body, we are creating space for old energy to move out and new energy to move in.
Learn tools and techniques that help to regulate your nervous system. Practice self-soothing exercises that aide in decreasing the heart rate, lowering the respiratory rate, decreasing stress hormones and help to transition the body out of fight or flight into a peaceful state of rest and digest.
Many individuals are living their day to day life in a constant state of underlined fear. Our bodies are designed to process and utilize the fear response, but this state of being can become toxic to the body if left unchecked and un regulated. We were not taught how to calm our nervous system and how to gently remind the body that we are safe and that we are no longer "running from the bear". When we practice Self-Soothing and Self-Regulation techniques we are creating time and space to learn how to work with our bodies and how to calm our nervous system. This leads to greater quality of life. This leads to a more balanced nervous system and increases the bodies ability to uptake nutrients, release tension and calm the anxious mind.
