Yin Yoga is a restorative and meditative style of yoga that can be an extremely helpful antidote to our fast-paced, quickly changing, and sometimes challenging times. Through long and passively held seated and supine postures and use of bolsters and other props, Yin Yoga helps calm the nervous system, quiet and focus the mind, and gently stretches deep muscle and connective tissues close to the bones and joints where our meridians lie and through which our life-force energy, or chi, flows.


Steeped in a combination of Indian yogic, Chinese Taoist and Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and meditative practice, Yin Yoga is a deep and rich practice that can benefit just about anyone, regardless of one's existing level of flexibility or experience with yoga.
