All-levels VinYin is the perfect balance between yin and yang. Class starts with vinyasa and ends with yin yoga, leaving you feeling refreshed and relaxed. The active practice of vinyasa flow requires us to tap into our yang energy as we move dynamically from pose to pose. The yin practice, rooted in the Taoist yoga tradition, is slower-paced and postures are held longer. Yin yoga targets the connective tissues healing to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. Led by Bill Lamb RYT-200.
