Yin Yoga is the perfect compliment to Yang (or active) Yoga and works well to balance the hectic and busy nature of life. Yin yoga promotes joint strength and range of motion as opposed to muscle strength and flexibility. It is considered a "cold" practice as the body does not create much heat while practicing.
Classes are held at Studio ONE which is right next door to Sojourn in downtown Hanford.
Please arrive to class 5 - 10 minutes early so we can start on time and you can enjoy the opening pose of class.
In Yin Yoga poses are held for 1 - 5 minutes.
You may bring water and since we are not generating much heat you may want a long sleeve shirt or warmer layer of clothing. Please note: we have loaner mats available for those that have not yet gotten a mat.
Please avoid wearing perfume as some are allergic and it can trigger asthma. Light application of therapeutic grade essential oil is okay.
