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

Level: Intermediate
