In Studio - Vin/Yin
with Jan Boettcher
1 hour
This class will begin with a warm heart-opening vinyasa practice allowing prana or energy to begin flowing as we warm the body and awaken the mind while using our breath to guide our flow. The second half of the class will take us to the floor where we will focus on Yin postures. These poses are held longer, usually 2-5 minutes, allowing us to stretch the deep layers of the connective tissues. The perfect class to balance effort with ease!
