Yin: (1 hour) This class is suitable for any level of student. The format will be similar to our Gentle class.  However, you will hold postures for a longer period of time enabling the mind to still and the body go deeper into the postures gently. We will focus on flexibility through seated and prone positions with a relaxation segment at the end of class.
