Restore balance to your life with Yin Yoga. This class will gently
apply stresses on the tissues of your body that yang yoga and exercise cannot. The result is strengthened joints and connective tissue.Many modern people feel anxiety and paradoxically a lack of energy.By applying pressure to many of the meridians of the body this class will work to restore the healthy flow of energy, reducing anxiety and accessing energy by unblocking its flow.
Mark has enjoyed a regular yoga practice since 2006. In the first few years he practiced at home using DVD’s. In 2009 he suffered from chronic back pain, fusion of two vertebral bones was recommended. An aversion to surgery, Mark stopped lifting weights and running and took his yoga practice to the next level. He worked with Ana Forrest doing intensive work for two weeks. He immediately followed this with a regular Bikram practice. Mark continues to have a strong Yang practice and has balanced it out with Yin yoga. He also enjoys Vinyāsa, Kundalini and Dharma yoga. Mark has been teaching since 2011, he completed his 200 hours of training with Paul and Suzee Grilley in 2012 and obtained his 200 RYT. He has also studied with Sarah Powers and Dashama Gordon. Yoga has relieved Mark of his back pain and it has helped to change his life in many ways. His desire is to share the life changing benefits that yoga has to offer with others.
What is Yin Yoga?
Yin Yoga classes focus on simple floor postures that stretch and stimulate the deep connective tissues of the body through remaining in the postures for longer periods of time than other forms of yoga that focus primarily on the muscular system. It is accessible to practitioners of any tradition and any experience level. Based on Chinese medicine, acupuncture and meridian theory, the Yin practice will strengthen chi flow to maintain the health and vitality of the body and organ system. Yin Yoga is the ideal complement to any exercise program, athletic activity and to the stresses of everyday life.
