It’s all about the balance of contrasts.

  • Yin / Restorative 

  • Yin & Yang

A Yin Yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly focuses on the lower part of the body—hips, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine, which are especially rich in connective tissues. The poses are held for up to five minutes, or longer.

Restorative classes use bolsters, blankets and blocks to prop students so the body can experience the benefits of a pose without having to exert any effort.

Yang Yoga, like Vinyasa, is a more active and rhythmic practice, coordinating breath and movement. It works on the muscles and blood flow — building strength, stamina and flexibility.

In Yoga, we see Yang as the external, dynamic, warming and upward counterpart to the more internal, passive, cooling and downward Yin.
