Gentle Yin/Yang Fusion

We’ve taken the best of both worlds to create a class that balances movement and flow with a deep stretch.  This class starts with breath work and a slow flow practice designed to gently warm the physical body and foster the mind/body connection.   We’ll move towards a deeper opening of the body by targeting the connective tissue with some Yin Yoga poses.  These are mostly seated poses that are held for a longer duration and at the practitioners “appropriate depth.”  We’ll wind down through a twist or perhaps a forward fold and then settle into a several minute long savasana.   Perfect for a day of rest if your body is tired or sore, or if you’re just looking for an opportunity to slow down, breathe deep and relax.

Temperature: Comfortable

Level: Beginner to Intermediate

Kat was trained as a classical ballet dancer, studying and performing for nearly 18 years with the Fletchers and with the Land of the Sky Civic Ballet in Asheville, NC. Kat started practicing yoga occasionally at a gym almost 25 years ago, but it wasn’t until 2011 that she committed to a steady and (almost) daily practice of yoga. Kat is currently manager of Key Largo Yoga and in addition to overseeing workshops and special events, she manages the schedule, our team of teachers, and our social media connections. Kat subs classes when the regular teacher is unavailable and as such can teach any level of Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Aerial, Gentle, SUP Yoga, and Yin. Kat continues her education as often as possible through her own practice, with her mentor Kathy Shirley, and by attending multiple workshops, conferences and events throughout the year.
