LSD: Long, Slow & Deep Yin Yoga with Jen Dapper
Sunday, September 14th from 4:30 to 6pm
Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.
While initially this style of yoga can seem passive, or soft, a Yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes! After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realize that you have been doing only half of the asana practice.
