Note: All yoga classes at Metrowest Yoga are meditative and spiritual. We teach with heart. All classes are choreographed to move the body through each body part and build strength while releasing tension and stress. Each class leaves the entire body feeling healthier, more connected and the mind feeling peaceful!
Yin yoga is a style of Hatha yoga where postures low to the mat (no standing postures) are held for up to 5 minutes each. These longer holds target the joints, ligaments, fascia, and other connective tissues of the body, referred to as Yin tissues. You can expect a lot of slow stretching in the deep connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, legs, and feet as well as some upper body work to open heart, arms and shoulders. Using Meridian Theory, classes may be themed to focus on the health and balance of certain vital organ tissues and the energetic states associated with those organs. Yin is slower paced and heavy on the meditative side. We will use props to help make the longer holds sustainable, but you may find the real work is sitting in stillness with sensation. We turn inward to tune out daily distractions, slow down the breath and listen to the body. This class is open to all levels of students. (No Heat)
