Yin yoga is the opposite of “Yang” yoga, which typically features more dynamic movements. In this yin class, we will spend a few minutes in each posture and use a multitude of props (listed in materials section) to set ourselves up in a position we can hold without strain. The intention of this class is to slow down and settle into our bodies and minds.

What you’ll learn:

You’ll learn the traditional differences between yin and yang yoga, and gain a deeper connection to your mind and body as you find ways to support both through exercises done in class that you can put into practice in your day to day life

What you’ll need for this class:

Props! The more the better! They don’t need to be yoga-specific, a lot of times you can round things up that you already have at home. Ideas include: a yoga strap (piece of fabric, long sleeve shirt, belt), yoga blocks (hardcover books), pillows, blankets, yoga mat (blanket or carpet also work for yin practice).

About the instructor:

The first time I tried Yin yoga I didn’t like it! It was only after a prolonged knee injury that I learned how magical the practice of slowing down and tuning in with your mind and body can be. This forced lifestyle change led me to attend a 100-hour yin yoga training in Mexico through Annie Au Yoga and I later earned my 200-hour Hatha yoga training in Barcelona.
