Yin Yoga Workshop
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced practice where mostly passive postures are held for longer periods of time, typically around three to five minutes each, accessing connective tissues between the muscles and deeper layers of fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints, reduce osteoporosis, improve flexibility and help restore mobility and resilience in the joints. The practice also creates an arena of mindfulness by shifting our dominance into our parasympathetic (“rest and digest”) nervous system, balances prana (life energy) and opens a gateway to seated meditation practice. Bring a yoga mat.

Instructors: Bita Peck is a 500-hour Registered Yoga Instructor with Yoga Alliance (RYT- 500) who teaches Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Yin, Alignment, and Restorative Yoga classes.
