Yin yoga is a slow and mindful practice. Seated and supine poses are passively held for minutes at a time, targeting connective tissue, ligaments, and joints. Full range of motion is explored, while you explore sensation with your awareness. This still and quiet practice encourages the nervous system to turn on parasympathetic functions or rest and digest mode.
This extended practice will go one step further by offering a talk-free practice. Megan will provide demonstrations for a sequence of poses (and possible variations or alternatives for those poses) without words. Simple internal practices will be briefly suggested at the beginning of class. Bring your awareness and your breath. Wear comfortable clothing, and consider socks and layers.
Previous experience with yin yoga is recommended but not mandatory.
