Our most gentle class and a compliment to any level of practice. No experience is needed. Restorative yoga emphasizes the calming of the nervous system and teaches the art of relaxation, which has tremendous mental and physical benefits.

A great class for all levels of yoga students.
A quiet practice suitable for all students. It provides an opportunity to surrender, slow down, and bring balance to your practice. Many of the poses are seated, and are held for longer periods of time to encourage slow and safe openings. There is a focus on the breath, being present in the moment, relieving tension and letting go. The Yin practice includes powerful mental and emotional benefits as its practitioner becomes quiet, still and mindful of the present. Yin yoga is open to all levels of students and is a perfect complement to a more yang or more active style of yoga such as Vinyasa or Power Flow.
