What is Yin Yoga?
Yin yoga is a still, slow form of yoga. Postures are done sitting or lying and are held for 2 to 5 minutes long. It is the vital balance needed to an active, dynamic, and muscular yoga practice or life style. Yin targets the fascia (connective tissue) and meridians, creating more ease throughout the body, especially in your joints.

Benefits of Yin Yoga include:

  • relief of back pain
  • increased flexibility and mobility
  • by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, it calms our body and minds
  • relief of stress and tension in the physical body
  • stilling of the mind, allowing for more clarity of thought

What is Mindfulness Meditation?

Mindfulness Meditation is a form of meditation designed to develop the skill of paying attention to our inner and outer experiences with acceptance, patience, and compassion. Mindfulness is cultivated by paying attention, without judgment, to whatever arises in the present moment. It helps us to become more fully aware of what is going on right now, allowing us to be less reactionary or on ‘automatic pilot.’ It supports more happiness and inner peace.
