Yin Yoga is a very simple practice. We settle into a posture for 3-7 minutes and slowly relax our muscles to allow the deeper drier tissues–-the connective tissues that wrap our muscles and make up our joint capsules-–to be safely and therapeutically stretched, stimulated and strengthened.

The alignment rules of the postures are also simple, but more importantly they are functional and organic: Listen to the body and find the posture in the natural contours of spine, pelvis and hips. However, simplicity can be challenging.
Listening to our bodies to find the natural alignment of the pose requires a power of discrimination, and an understanding and familiarity with the ever-changing sensations in the body.

In this practice, Joe will patiently lead you into an exploration of the many possible shapes in Yin with and without props, and cue the functional sensations and warn of possible contraindications.
Class time devoted to lecture: 11-20 minutes
