Whether you’re new to yin yoga or you’ve been practicing it for a while, this five-class program is designed to help you slow down, turn inward, and cultivate the quiet stillness that is the essence of yin. And, you’ll also have the opportunity to combine yin with yang (active) yoga, so you can experience the integrating effects of blending the two styles.
You’ll begin with an exploration of basic poses. Then, you'll learn how to use props to help you work within your range of motion. You’ll also do a short-hold practice for your whole body and two hip- and heart-focused yin/yang sequences. Throughout the classes, Ellen explains the benefits of the poses so that you can fully experience the spiritual and mental, as well as the physical effects of yin. She also offers suggestions for deepening your awareness at each step of the way, helping you to feel supported as you progress into longer holds.
Visit these practices again and again—allow yourself to go deeper over time if you wish—and most of all, enjoy the process.
