Yin Yoga practice focuses on a release of connective tissues and cultivation of observance, breath, and meditation as we surrender into postures for longer periods of time and open ourselves to the release of deeply held, stagnant energy. We then move into a short, gentle flow that allows us to integrate this openness and awareness into a sense of steadiness and alignment in our body. Suitable for all levels.
Mindful Yoga is a mindfulness or awareness-based practice centered on the recognition of the interconnectedness that exists between of our mind and our body. It is a blend between an adaptive and gentle hatha yoga and mindful meditation. By practicing Mindful Yoga we are able to access the multiple potential physical benefits of yoga (such as flexibility, balance, posture and strength) while developing the natural skills of our mind (such as awareness, attention, and concentration). In this way, by practicing Mindful Yoga we are ultimately training ourselves to address the reality of our daily life with more compassion and respond to its challenges from a place of love, inner and outer balance and stability.
