Hot Yin 
Hot Yin , also known as gentle Yoga or the quiet practice, Yin Yoga is the quintessential relaxing class. Yin Yoga derives its name from the Chinese Taoist concept of Yin and Yang where Yin is associated with calming, soothing, introspection, and an attitude of quiet acceptance. Practicing Yin Yoga is an attempt to gently stretch and rehabilitate the connective tissue that forms our joints.  Connective tissue accounts for 50% of the resistance against our body’s flexibility compared to 40% provided by muscles. Connective tissue doesn’t respond to brief, rhythmical stretches as muscles do.  For this reason, one of the fundamental characteristics of Yin Yoga is to hold the postures longer than other practices and with most of the muscles relaxed.  This is a 75 minute class, all on the floor, that will be taught with low, soothing lights. The heat will be a little less than other practices offered at our studio but still felt. Come in to try this unique and effective class that will give you an opportunity to slow down a frenetic life schedule, a way to counter a stressful situation or just a chance to spend an hour doing quiet, introspective yoga.
