Candlelit Yin Yoga @ Bearfoot Yoga Center

  • Bearfoot Yoga Center 146 E Main St Bay Shore, NY 11706 (map)

What’s often missed is the sheer simplicity of slow practice: being upside down for longer than a moment and down on the floor in the grit, where the only way to experience a vast universe is to halt completely...

Yin Yoga is a deep, dynamic asana practice which targets the 'Yin' tissues of the body: the connective tissue (fascia). ligaments, joints, and bones. In Yin Yoga, our primary goal is to use moderate 'loading' of the joints and fascial lines, exercising the yin tissues of the body, rather than exercising or stretching the muscles. This practice can help to dramatically improve the energy systems of the body, as well as encouraging flexibility, elasticity, and resiliency in the joints and bones. Use this practice to serve as a compliment to your yang (muscle-based) practices and enjoy the added meditative benefits of the long held postures.

This is a workshop class, $25/person.
