Yin Yoga: Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses or asanas that are held for longer periods of time—three to five minutes is typical. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints. Improving flexibility, mobility and preventing injury.
About the teacher:
“Leah, a Yin Yang Yoga Instructor, describes yoga as a “beautiful and effective practice because it taps us into our parasympathetic nervous systems and allows us to rest, reset, heal and digest to feel calm and nourished.” One of Leah’s favorite childhood memories “is of her mom popping up into a headstand in her living room.” She is now living out the awe and inspiration that yoga asanas evoked in her from early childhood. ”
In her classes Leah creates an environment where people can direct their energy and attention within, to connect with their bodies’ innate intelligence. Tapping into meditation and music, students are encouraged to find connection to their inner wisdom, healing, creativity and joy. Leah’s belief is that every choice, every day, in every way, can add restored vitality and mind-body balance into our lives.
Leah has taken some 400 cumulative hours of various yoga training courses with Master Teachers including Yin Yoga teacher training with Bernie Clark and 100 hours of in residence Yin/Insight Yoga training with Sarah Powers. Leah is currently pursuing certification in Ayurveda and is also a passionate student of Meditation, she incorporates this as well as Chinese Medicine Meridian Theory, Western Science, and Nature into her teaching, bringing her love of yoga and her ever-growing knowledge of it to share with others.
