3:30-4:30pm * Breathe through Heart Opening Yin Postures * Open to All * Vicki

Yin yoga is inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine and the meridian theory. The purpose is to apply moderate stress to soft tissue, muscles, fascia and ligaments - with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Throughout this practice, Vicki will share information about TCM and heart opening practices. These floor poses will be held for 3 to 5 minutes with a focus on breath work. This class is open to intermediate beginners.
