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 3-4 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.
We 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. We look forward to sharing our practice with you!

Expose Yourself to the Yoga of being Nude at The Space!
A slower paced, gentle vinyasa style class where we’ll combine the mind, body, and breathe to connect with ourselves on a deeper level. Clothing is removed at the beginning of class (women and trans participants may wear bottoms if they choose otherwise nudity is mandatory) with awareness given towards letting the masks and limitations our daily lives places on us go. All are welcome!
