Yinstorative is a hybrid of Yin and Restorative yoga; a complementary yoga practice to the other more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles offered. In Yinstorative class, floor postures are held passively for several minutes in order to access a safe and positive ‘stress’ on the deep layers of connective tissue in the body.
Physically, Yinstorative restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints, primarily between the navel and the knees. Energetically, Yinstorative opens the body’s meridian system, which enhances the body’s energetic flow and supports emotional equilibrium. Because this practice emphasizes stillness and silence, Yinstorative prepares both the body and the mind for deeper experiences in meditation. Yin is a wonderful class for all level yogis.
