Yin Yoga / Stretch & Relax – by Diane

YinYoga 1Diane’s Stretch & Relax classes feature a slow-paced style of yoga known as Yin Yoga.

The Yin yoga classes are scheduled throughout the week. Please go to Class Schedules to find the most suitable class for you.

Yin Yoga is a practice that targets the deep connective tissues of the body – ligaments, bones and joints.  Poses are typically held for minutes at a time and generally target the pelvis, hips and lower spine.  A regular Yin practice is a great balance to active yoga styles, regulating the flow of energy in the body, releasing tension and developing a greater range of motion in the body.

Yogis In The Wild

Most Yogis like the outdoors, and Jana and Diane are no exception. This past summer they were able to enjoy some holidays at the lake, where they kept up their daily exercises.
