Yin & The Moon
February 1 @ 9:30 pm - February 23 @ 10:45 am
We’ll look to the Moon as our guide and celebrate our darkness and light, our strength and softness, our abilities to be active and restful, to be grounded and hopeful through this weekly yin yoga practice, lead by Sarah Matik, CMYT, RYT-200.
Yin Yoga consists of seated and reclining poses that are held for 3-7 minutes at a time, stretching along the energetic meridian lines outlined in Traditional Chinese Medicine. This style is a perfect complement to a more active (Yang) yoga practice, as it provides the balance of stillness. Yin Yoga is also helpful for anyone suffering from low energy or stress, as it recharges your batteries and brings harmony to the body and mind. Holding the poses for several minutes at a time allows us to bring in the practice of cultivating mindfulness, presence and develop skills for a deeper meditation practice. Blocks, Straps and Blankets will be used for support when needed. Appropriate for all levels.
