Candlelit Yin Yoga
with Krista Mason
Sundays, 2/24, 3/24 & 4/14, 6:30-8 pm
Nourish your body and mind in this quiet, relaxing practice. You will leave relaxed and rejuvenated with a deeper feeling of balance and a deeper sense of calm.
Yin Yoga helps bring balance to our overly busy lifestyles. It is a contemplative practice of long, passive holds (generally 3-5 minutes) in specific floor postures to nourish the joints and ligaments of our body while emphasizing and deepening into the breath throughout the practice. These asanas gently strengthen and rehabilitate the connective tissues that form our joints, allowing us to maintain and restore joint flexibility. This practice helps to bring balance to both our lives and our more active yoga practices. Yin Yoga also allows us to become more present, allowing us to draw “within” ourselves and quiet our mind and body. As we find that quiet acceptance in our postures, we can also find this acceptance spilling out into our life.
We will practice by the glow of candlelight, and finish practice by sharing some yummy chocolate! We will leave relaxed, rejuvenated, and filled with ease.
Cost is $20.
