Yin yoga is a quiet, cooling, non-muscular practice where we hold poses for longer periods of time, usually between three to ten minutes. These longer holds help to stretch deeply into the body to reach the fascia, connective tissue, and gently open the joints. Yin Yoga is a fantastic compliment to a regular yang practice. This class can be booked using a class pass, or can be booked as a six-week course.
Trauma Informed Yoga is a methodology designed to support those who suffer from trauma and trauma related illnesses by offering a place of structure and safety. Trauma informed care offers students a space where they may listen to their own bodies and respond to its needs in the present moment. Trauma informed yoga can compliment conventional therapy with embodiment practices that may include movement, breathing, or mindfulness.
