Yin Yoga
Next dates:  t.b.a.
Instructor: Doug Podiluk, E-RYT, Yoga Alliance Lead Trainer, Certified Yin Yoga 
Description: Yin Yoga is a practice which places healthy, gentle, regenerative stress on the connective tissue of the body - tendons, ligaments, fascia. Postures are practiced carefully and mindfully and may be held for longer periods of time to allow gradual and safe restoration of the connective tissues. The lower body is mainly targeted using passive postures that may feel challenging to maintain. This calm, beneficial practice is a great counter training to more active styles of yoga, and helps to reduce aches, pains and overall physical and mental tension and stress.

Yin Yoga:  Yin yoga practice targets tendons, ligaments and fascia within the body. Each posture is held for long periods of time to encourage slow and safe opening of connective tissues.   Although Yin yoga is a more passive practice it can be quite challenging Yin yoga classes involve a relaxed practice of floor postures that are held from three to five minutes at a time, with focus on the feeling in targeted joints/connective tissue.  A perfect antidote to stress and a great complement to more active styles of yoga.
Open to all levels of students.  Please note this is not a Restorative Yoga class.

New to Yoga?

Here is some information that may be helpful
- Wear bare feet and loose comfortable clothing.  Longer shorts/sweat pants and a t-shirt are fine.
- If you do not have a yoga mat yet, the studio has mats you can borrow.  The studio also provides yoga blocks and straps you may wish to use.
- It is best not to practice yoga on a full stomach.
- Drinking water an hour or so before class will help you to not become thirsty during class.  However, you can bring a water bottle with you if you wish.
- A small hand towel may be helpful as an extra small prop for your neck, knees, etc.
- Please do not chew gum during class.  This can interfere with breathing, distract the other students, and possibly be a safety hazard in some poses. 

In consideration for your fellow participants:
- Some people arrive early to class to relax or meditate.  Please talk quietly before class so as not to disturb the other students.
- We all try to be on time for class, but if you are late and class has started, please come into the studio quietly.
- Some people are allergic to scents.  In consideration for these individuals, please do not apply scented products prior to yoga class.
- Please remember to turn off your cell phone when you come into the studio.   If you need to leave your phone on because you are "on call" - just let the teacher know before class.
- Please do not chew gum during class.  This can interfere with breathing, distract the other students, and possibly be a safety hazard in some poses.
