Yin yoga is a great counterpart to the other fast-paced high-intensity classes offered at P2O. This softer and more meditative, restorative style of yoga is like a tune-up for athletes as it increases mobility in the body, especially the joints and hips. Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga that supports connective tissue health and introspection by holding a series of passive poses for extended periods of time (3-5 minutes). In this class you let go of any tension you are holding in your body, find stillness, and allow gravity to do all the work. The use of props for support is strongly encouraged so that the body can soften beyond the muscle and deep into the joints and fascia. The best part? It is all done by candlelight!
