Yin

Our Salt Lake City Yin yoga class works deeply into the body’s connective tissues; it targets our ligaments, tendons, and the fascia networks of the body. With a series of long-held, supported postures we gently stretch the body’s relatively stiff, connective tissues. When we do this the body responds by making them a little longer and little stronger.

The length of time we hold these postures also has a profound effect on our minds. Yin provides us space to reclaim the balance between body and mind as we settle in and explore our physical sensations while observing the thoughts and feelings that arise throughout the process. It is here that we can find a sense of openness and ease with all that we are.

Yin Yang Yoga

Yin Yang Yoga blends two  styles of yoga into one practice – bringing together the benefits of  passively holding yoga poses with  more dynamic sequences and standing postures. Yin and Yang are  the Taoist concepts which describe  the two relative qualities present in  everything. Yin is more internal, passive, cooling and downward. Yang  is more external, dynamic, warming and upward.

Helps with balancing energy, flexibility and  strength
