Yin Yoga with Liz Tyburczy

Yin Yoga is the gentle application of tension and compression to encourage a healthy phase change in the fascia. The use of longer passively held postures work the deep connective tissues of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Holding postures for an extended period of time gently stretches and rehabilitates the connective tissues that form our joints; the magic in yin is time not intensity. There is a focus on the breath, being present in the moment, relieving tension and letting go. 

 

Advancing Your Practice with Christine Dates or Dina Crosta

This is a teacher-led community style practice that is open for practitioners that are comfortable moving through a class with minimal instruction, self-directed choices, and a willingness to explore yoga postures and movement approaches that can deepen and enhance their current physical asana practice. Minimal hands-on adjustments, occasional partnering with other students and the use of props are all potential components of this class. Some experience with yoga is recommended.
