The Taoist concepts of Yin and Yang describe the two qualities or energies present in everything; from our food and our bodies, to the seasons and the world around us.
Yin qualities can be thought of as more internal, passive, cooling and downward while Yang is more external, dynamic, warming and upward.
We can also think of our bodies and our yoga practice in terms of Yin and Yang. In this class, instructor Mary Jane Kasliner, will guide students through dynamic flowing postures that work on the yang tissues for building strength and fitness while the second part of the class focuses on soothing, grounding poses that turn off the overdrive switch. The supported holds in the Yin portion of the class helps the body and mind to relax and release tension, both mentally and physically while creating gentle traction and compression that helps to flush out toxins and lubricate the joints while releasing tension in the surrounding connective tissues.
This class ends with relaxing meditation and foot massage. Some yoga experience is recommended. Bring Yoga mat and water.
