STRETCH LIKE YOU'VE NEVER STRETCHED BEFORE.
Yin Yoga is the base of this class style. The poses you are guided into apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fasciae, and ligaments—with the goal of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. This is a more meditative approach to yoga that will bring awareness of inner silence mentally and a plethora of benefits physically.
If your body is hurting (knees, back, hips, etc), you need this style of yoga in your life!
What You Need To Know
What To Bring
Often times, your teacher will begin this class by asking you how your body is feeling. "Why?" you might ask... Well, they want to make sure you're getting out of this class what you need to! Talk about customization.
The majority of this class will be spent on the floor, moving into poses that you will hold for a minimum of 3 minutes each. During this time, your teacher will encourage you to find complete stillness.
Let us repeat - COMPLETE STILLNESS.
Since you will be asked to move in and our of poses that are intended to actively stretch your body, many find this class to be more intense than they anticipate their first time taking it. Just remember, if you feel tingling, numbness, or pain... Your body is asking you to back out of the pose slightly! Props are encouraged and will be offered by your teacher to help you find your ultimate stretch.
Our non-heated room is set to a comfortable temperature of 68-72 degrees fahrenheit. We encourage everyone to dress in layers so that you can take off or add more clothing as needed to make you feel most comfortable. We have blankets available if you need a little extra warmth.
Bring a yoga mat and water. You don't have one or more of those items? Not to worry! We have water available for purchase for $2, mats available for rent for $3, and towels available for your complementary use during every visit. We can help you gather the items you need at the front desk!
All other necessary props and equipment are provided by Rogue Awakening.
