Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues (which we are calling the yang tissues). Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.

Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.

Yin: Release Resistance

Elise Fabricant

Discover the power and freedom that comes when you release resistance and let go. In this Yin Yoga practice, you will start slowly in child's pose, gradually building the intensity with lunge and pigeon and more, all the while learning to release tension and surrender. Integrated into this practice are self-massage, mudra and pranayama (breathwork). Enjoy!

Melt and Let Go

Erin Wimert

Let it all melt away for the next hour. Allow your body to disintegrate and see the mind follow as you experience the practice of non-doing. Balance some soothing forward folds with a supported backbend and finish the practice with a juicy lateral stretch and twist for the spine. Get ready to say, "Ahhh!".

Yin / Yang Balancing Flow

Claire Petretti Marti

We’re all a mix of masculine active energy (solar) and feminine receptive energy (lunar). Sometimes life jolts us out of equilibrium and we can feel too aggressive or too passive. This class is designed to address and shift this imbalance so you feel strong, yet soft.

You’ll start with Nadi Shodhana Pranayama (alternate nostril breathing) to balance the left and right sides of your brain. Then, a warming Yang Vinyasa flow will help you burn off excess prana. The second half of class is a juicy Yin practice where you’ll hold poses like Butterfly, Sphinx and Sleeping Swan for a few minutes each to encourage your parasympathetic nervous system to kick in and relax. Enjoy!

Rockin Bhakti VinYin

Christen Bakken

Our bodies call for movement and our minds are desperate for stillness. In this VinYin (Vinyasa Yin class) we will work on both of these needs. We will move vigorously for the first half of class and close class with long holds and focused breath. While the first half of class will get you drop beads of sweat, the second half of class will invite us to drop our heads and open our hearts. The quick and balanced flow is appropriate for all levels.

Yin Yang Yoga for Lower Body

Elise Fabricant

Start this practice with long, slow yin holds which open the connective tissues of your lower body from hips to toes. Move on to more strengthening poses which will engage the muscles of your legs without over-taxing them. Then ground down through the lower body and learn how this can create more lightness and ease in the upper. Finally, Elise will again guide you through a soft, yin-like practice to end the class relaxed and calm. Pair with this session with Yin/Yang for the upper body for a longer, full-body experience.

Nighty Night, Don't Sleep Tight

Kylie Larson

Release the day's stress with this mellow, stretchy class. We hit the shoulders and the hips mainly since this is where people usually are holding onto tension. This class is gentle and relaxing on the body and while this class is not necessarily Yin or Restorative, it has both properties. You will practice some Yin poses with long holds and also be put in restorative positions. One word to describe this class is "Ahhhhh."

Slow Down: RockYIN Bhakti Yoga

Christen Bakken

Slowing down and simplifying seem to be at the roots of the sort of transformation so many are trying to make in our day and age. In this slow, yin-like class, we will not only hold our grounding, floor based poses for a longer time, we will call upon a slower breath. Inside of the physical work, there is space for devotion/bhakti. Who would you want to slow your life down a bit to be with? What we practice on the mat travels with us as we leave the mat. Enjoy this gentle asana practice to help root, simplify, and transform.

Yin Yang Yoga for the Upper Body

Elise Fabricant

The combination of Yin and Yang Yoga opens, stretches and strengthens not only your muscles but also your connective tissue, which is very important when working with the upper body. Our shoulders, chest and neck are areas which tend to take on the stress of too much computer work and our hectic daily lives. During the first half of this class you will gentle Yang poses for this area of your body and during the second half you will sink in and chill out with some deep, opening Yin poses.

Yin Yoga for Flexibility and Relaxation

Elise Fabricant

Yin Yoga is a slow, deep practice which is simple but not always easy. In fact, most Yin classes are meant to be challenging. Not so with this one! In Yin Yoga for Relaxation and Flexibility, we combine the long holds of Yin with some of the support of Restorative to create more ease in body and mind. Experience the renewing qualities of supported backbends, supine twists, gentle hip work and side body openers in this accessible class.

Yin Yang Yoga for the Lower Back

Elise Fabricant

Is your lower back a sensitive or weak area for you? Does it stiffen up from too much sitting, or even excessive exercise? Do you spend a lot of time bending over or lifting? If so, this is the class for you. We will start and end this session with gentle, mellow Yin poses. Holding these therapeutic shapes on the floor will help loosen and release tight back muscles and connective tissue. Sandwiched in the middle of the Yin practice is a more active Yang flow which will wake up and strengthen the back as well as the front of the pelvis. After just 35 minutes, you will feel this tricky area of your body alive with new energy and fluidity!

Yin Yang 2

Elise Fabricant

This class will be half yin and half yang. The yin portion will take place on the floor, where we will do a deep stretch of our connective tissue, calming the mind and body. The second half will be more energized, where we will deeply stretch the muscles and engage in more active standing postures that will get our body moving. This unique class will leave you feeling very balanced -- equal parts relaxed and energized! While Yin/Yang #1 started with Yin first and was appropriate for the morning, this Yin/Yang #2 ends with the Yin and is perfect for getting your blood flowing and then winding down at the end of your day!

Enter the Stillness

Alex Cordoba

Movement -- quick movement at that -- is often thought to be synonymous with yoga in that it can be months, even years, before we finally recognize not just the importance of, but the true gift that cultivating and sitting in stillness can be. It is in the sacred equation of yoga and amidst the busyness of our lives. Let this class be just that for you: a gift. To slow down. To enter the stillness so that you can reenter the world feeling refreshed and renewed.

Restorative Yin Yoga

Channing Grivas

The yin based approach to yoga blends asanas with taoist meridian theory and mindfulness techniques. Postures are held for 2-4 minutes with muscles relaxed to target the connective tissue and organ systems. This slower style of yoga practice allows the poses to guide students into deeper layers of awareness. This style of practice is designed for those looking for a slower paced meditative and restorative approach to yoga and is a great compliment to the more vigorous styles of yoga.

Yin Yoga

Elise Fabricant

This is a very slow, gentle, centering yoga practice that incorporates passive resting poses done on the floor. Unlike most yoga classes that include dynamic flow poses (yang), Yin yoga works to dramatically increase flexibility and enhance the energy distribution through the body by holding poses for long periods of time. It utilizes postures that rehabilitate connective tissue in the spine, low back, hips and thighs, and are deeply rejuvenating.

Teaching Yin Yoga is an artform and Elise's teachings through this class are just that. This class is suitable for all levels of ability.
