Yoga Poses

 

Yin Yoga: Yin yoga helps stretch the connective tissues of the body. The practice is quiet and passive; it has a quality of stillness. The poses are held for a longer period of time which can be very meditative and calming allowing your awareness and breath to be directed to a particular part of the body and keeping your joints mobile and helping regulate the flow of energy in the body. This type of practice is beneficial to all levels.
