    Restorative Yin Yoga - 10 classes

    This class combines the benefits of two yoga styles:Yin and Restorative.  Yin Yoga is meant to increase range of motion by improving flexibility of connective tissues in the lower back, pelvis and hip sockets.  This class is practiced on the mat, using props to fully support the body. Restorative elements help students passively hold poses and find a deeper acceptance of self through stillness and surrender.
