This class is based on the Yin Yoga style codified by Paul Grilley and championed by Canada’s Bernie Clark. According to Clark, the Yin Yoga practice reflects current studies demonstrating a combination of discriminating stress to connective tissue, while using long holds, “creates and maintains healthy tissue, rather than exaggerating range of motion”. This practice will help maximize functionality in everyday life, whether it’s doing a shoulder check or applying force to a joint during physical activity.
It is essential to inform the instructor of any injuries or limitations so modifications can be considered. Wear extra clothes, including socks, so the body is warm.
