Yin Yoga – Cathy Haymaker 

Yin Yoga is a meditative approach to yoga with a physical focus on accessing the deeper connective tissues and fascia. With an emphasis on long-held, passive stresses of the deep connective tissues, Yin Yoga mobilizes and strengthens joints, ligaments and deep fascial networks. Yin Yoga is a wonderful way to maintain flexibility. 
With the aid of props and music students will hold a posture from 1-5 minutes, allowing their breath to create openings in the body while simultaneously allowing the mind to clear, entering a deeper, meditative, and relaxed state.
