YIN FLOW Yoga with Sally Raspberry
Fridays 8:00-9:15 am (4 class mini series) Aug 25, Sept 1, Sept 8, Sept 15th
Deepen your flexibility, intuition and balance as we explore the Yin aspects of Vinyasa flow. By exponentially slowing the pace and holding each pose at an edge that softens our connective tissues, we introduce qualities of Yin to a traditional Yang practice (lengthening vs strengthening, receiving vs giving, introspection vs external noticing and silence vs talking). This practice creates clarity in the mind and space in the body to manifest creativity and energy as you move through your days.
