Vin/Yin Blend

This “Yin-Yasa” practice is designed to bring balance to the two energies within the body – the feminine Yin and masculine Yang.  We’ll start with a quick warm up and then move into a level 1 vinyasa flow practice to heat the body.  For the second half of practice we will slow down and cool down, spending time in a handful different yin yoga postures to target the connective tissue of the hips, shoulders and spine.  This combined practice will help build strength and stamina, as well as flexibility.  We will close with alternate nostril breathing to further balance the Nadis (energy channels).  You’ll leave with a sense of harmony, lightness and ease that you can carry with you through the rest of your day.

Temperature: Warm, then Comfortable

I was a "Jazzerciser" and aerobic dancer for twenty years and even taught aerobic dance classes. In 2007 I had an opportunity to attend a yoga class and really enjoyed the stretching yoga offered and started regularly attending class. In the next couple of years I  suffered great losses in my family. I started to realize that my time on my mat was helping with more than stretching - it was helping me find a peaceful mind. In 2012 I under went major surgery on my neck and afterward I was not sure a yoga asana practice would be possible for me again. But I had to try, and received my doctors approval to start my yoga practice with no headstands. I became stronger everyday, yoga was helping me gain strength and also helping me accept what would never be the same. I have been a student of Kathy Shirley since 2011 when I first came to Key Largo. In October 2016 I started Yoga teacher training with Key Largo Yoga. I wanted to learn more about the spiritual part of yoga. It was a truly uplifting and humbling experience. There was so much that I learned but there is also so much more to learn. I finished the yoga teacher training in April 2017 and I am now a 200 hour RYT, which is just the beginning.
