Yin Yoga with Kerry

Yin Yoga with Kerry

Come try the Yin side of yoga life. Yin yoga works on the yin tissues - also known as the connective tissues (fascia, tendons, ligaments). Connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady load which is why we hold the poses for longer. If you gently stretch connective tissue by holding a yin pose for a long time in this way, the body will respond by making it a little longer and stronger - which is exactly what you want.

Yin yoga is for you if you are tired and craving energy, or you are overstimulated and have too much energy. If your mind is over-active and your energy levels erratic.

Props are used and encouraged.

Gentle Yoga & Yoga Nidra with Deborah

Join Deborah Escobar every Friday for gentle yoga followed by yoga nidra.

Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. The state of relaxation is reached by turning inwards, away from outer experiences, allowing consciousness to function at a heightened level of awareness. Yoga Nidra is a practice accessible to everyone that focuses on cultivating multiple levels of wellbeing. Whether we are looking to calm the nervous system to reduce stress and anxiety or remove unwanted habits and tendencies. When practiced with consistency and awareness, our true nature and integrity manifest, enabling us to live meaningful and peaceful lives in any environment.
