Yin Yang Yoga – Dawna Marriott
Combining the two elements of yin and yang, this class gives students the range of poses needed to create balance for the mind, body and spirit. Some classes will start with deep, introspective yin poses that target connective tissue and expand flexibility, then evolve into energizing and uplifting yang flows that encourage strength and stamina. Other classes will warm the body with flow and movement first, then settle into poses for longer holds. And, some classes will flow yin and yang together, combining the two throughout. The end of each class includes a classic savasana or restorative pose, allowing the body to release and learn the art of relaxation.

Yin Yoga – Dawna Marriott
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures (asanas) that are held for longer periods of time – from 2 to 6 minutes, depending on the pose. Offering a chance to settle in according to your body and how it feels, yin poses go beyond stretching by apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body – the tendons, fascia and ligaments – with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin also aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence. While some asanas can bring up strong emotions, moving slowly and carefully through and between poses peels away layers of stress and tension, leaving an open calmness and deeper understanding of your body.
