Yin Yoga Workshop with Stephanie Kang

Inspired by gentleness, precision, and “letting go,” a yin practice is designed to bypass the muscular tissue and target the connective tissues—ligaments, tendons and fascia—to improve flexibility and increase circulation in the joints. Yin opens up the meridian points (energy channels based in Traditional Chinese Medicine) which enables the vital energy (chi/prana) to flow more freely, bringing balance and improved functionality to the organs they represent. Perfect for athletes, office workers, or anyone who wants to open the body and still the mind from distraction. A complement to more active forms of yoga, yin poses may be held for 3-5 minutes each, allowing the body time to relax and sink deeper into each pose.
