    The Other Half of Yoga


    Yin yoga is sometimes thought of as “the other half” of yoga. To truly complete your yoga practice and experience the wholeness of the benefits of yoga, consider adding this style to what you are already doing. Or, if you have been nervous or intimidated by yoga in the past, feel like you are not “fit” enough to do yoga or have some injuries that may make a more traditional yoga class difficult for you, Yin yoga is a great place to start.


    Unlike the more traditional, active styles of yoga (sometimes referred to as Yang styles), which physically focus on stretching and strengthening the muscles through movement and flow, Yin yoga shifts its focus to stretching the connective tissue of the body – the ligaments, tendons, joints and fascia. In order to do this, there is less movement and more stretching and holding poses for longer periods of time – usually 3-6 minutes. Don’t worry – you are not going to be trying to stay in Downward Dog, Plank, or Tree poses for this long! In Yin yoga, the goal is to use minimal muscular effort – so instead of using your arms to hold you in place, we use bolsters and blankets to support you, so you can relax into the stretch. Think spinal twists and seated forward bends. Many people love the meditative benefits of a Yin practice as well.



    The longer pose holds and less movement allow your mind to focus on your meditation. This is sometimes the more challenging part of the practice for some people, and others, the more freeing side of their yoga practice.

    I invite you to join us and see if Yin is your “yoga crush” as well! All body sizes, shapes and capabilities are welcome, accepted and loved. In Yin yoga, modifications are a rule, not an exception. You will learn to work with and love your body if you are not there already. I look forward to sharing my practice with you!



    ~~~ All events at The Space are for those 19+ years old and older

    ~~~ All events at The Space are substance and alcohol free

    This is a flowing movement class that gives your full body some love. Classes include balancing, standing and seated poses. We will be connecting breath and movement while learning techniques for cultivating physical and mental well-being. Yoga is for every BODY. It doesn’t judge you. It’s all about listening to your most intimate partner, yourself. I look forward to moving and grooving with some beautiful souls.

    Beth has been in Columbus for over 9 years and digging every moment. She has been practicing different types of yoga since her college days, but only recently started getting serious about (this style). Her love of connection and community is what enticed her to share the magic of yoga and become an instructor.

    We are so excited and honored to have made it this far and see how our community has come together to bring this to life. All of us came together and created a safe place where we can all be our authentic selves and experience new forms of self-expression in a safe and non-judgmental environment. From drumming to play parties to meditation to kinky & geeky to yoga to tantra and everything else, we have a place you can bring your ideas, relationships, kinks, and worldviews! 

    We want to thank everyone who came into The Space over the last two years. We want to celebrate with you and share in our excitement about what is next. So, to celebrate with YOU we are going to have an Open House. We will have Hamburgers, Hotdogs, and the fixings, plus we’ll do some giveaways, whoop whoop!
