Yin

A slow-paced, meditative yoga practice that targets the fascia and connective tissues of the body by holding postures long periods of time, typically 3 to 10 minutes, with the muscles relaxed. In this yin workshop, Isaac will introduce the yin practice to Yoga NoMa.

Next Level Yin

Yin yoga is a slow-paced meditative yoga practice that targets the fascia and connective tissues of the body by holding floor-based postures long periods of time, typically 3 to 10 minutes. In this class, Isaac focuses on taking your yoga practice to the next level through a focus on stillness and mindfulness of your unique body. When we are able to stay present and in the moment, we open ourselves to a deeper relationship with ourselves and a more powerful experience on the mat, with the goal being to apply the same skills we practice in life off the mat as well. The class is not designed to be physically challenging, so in that sense it is open and accessible to all levels of fitness and yoga experience. However, the class challenges and strengthens the student’s inner practice through the long-held stillness. Many consider yin yoga to be a gateway to a deeper meditation practice. As a part of the meditative and mindfulness practice, between poses students will be offered a resting pose, called the “rebound” by yin yoga founder Paul Grilley.

Flow & Release

Flow & Release focuses on mindfulness and paying attention to the body as we move through the 75-minute sequence. We begin with a vigorous vinyasa practice to warm up and strengthen the body as we build and maintain both our flexibility and balance. Next we transition to yin yoga, in which the poses are done on the floor and held for a few minutes at a time in a relaxed position, in order to provide a gentle stretch to the myofascial groups of the body, improving the health of the tissues and the flow of chi. Students are encouraged to make the practice their own with variations given to allow students to to individualize the practice during class. This intermediate class is open to all levels and beginners.
