“Stillness is one of the doors into the temple.” ~ Mary Oliver
Clinical research shows when individuals practice mindfulness they become more present, leading to decreased stress, enhanced emotional equilibrium and creativity, deeper capacity to focus, and more effective communication. Yin Yoga provides a balance to the pace of modern living, restoring your natural energy. In this beautiful, meditative, and centering yoga practice, poses are held for several minutes, which stimulates the deeper tissues (the fascia, ligaments, tendons and bones).
Join me to explore and experience the benefits of both of these practices. We’ll practice several ancient techniques to calm the mind and soothe the nervous system, techniques that you can take off your mat and into your life. Combining mindfulness practices with yin yoga, we will cultivate relaxation, softening the heart space and unraveling tension, which helps to activate the body’s healing response, nourish connective tissue and support emotional equilibrium. You can expect to leave with a deeper sense of balance and ease.
