YIN YOGA -
The perfect practice for everyone! Elaine , co-owner of The Yoga Oasis in Charlotte, NC is a gifted Master Yoga instructor in the Taoist lineage of Yin Yoga. Her classes are led with gentle guidance and filled with information about the health benefits of Yin Yoga.
Yin Yoga is for improving joint mobility and increasing natural range of motion without limitation.
The practice consists of floor postures held for two to five minutes exerting very little energy which allows for the safe and appropriate expansion of the joints and connective tissues(fascia) while gently stretching the major energy meridians of the body.
This practice compliments the more muscular or Yang forms of yoga and exercise giving the joints a rest. Letting go and finding stillness in each posture is the Yin experience.
Unplug from the constant stimulation of smartphones, computers, TV and busy details of life, let your body soften and be still.
Perfect for healing injuries.
Everyone and all levels encouranged to attend this class.
Practiced in a non heated room.
