Candlelight Slow Glow at the beginning of class, we will warm our bodies and minds with some breath work and meditation. Followed by a vinyasa flow, holding the poses for at least five breaths. Allowing postures to thread together into a sequence of breath led movement. At the end of class, we will end with yin postures. Yin offers a sweet, relaxing stretch focused on lengthening muscles, releasing fascia and allowing ligaments and tendons to release. In a “Vin/Yin” class we marry the two to offer a little movement and flow followed by deeper stretches and relaxation. This class will take place under the glow of candlelight and in a warm room (temp will be between 75 & 80). This will be the perfect class for cold winter nights, relaxing and preparing your body for sleep.
