Yin‐style poses, which are primarily seated postures, are held for longer periods of time and use less muscular engagement than traditional yoga poses. This technique stimulates and releases deep connective tissues (e.g., fascia) in order to improve flexibility and joint mobility. While not "easy", careful attention and support for individual anatomy make this practice accessible to students of all ages and experience levels. The slower pace and quiet stillness of a Yin yoga fosters a sense of calm and relaxation. Instructor: Roberta Forester

Yin‐style poses, which are primarily seated postures, are held for longer periods of time and use less muscular engagement than traditional yoga poses. This technique stimulates and releases deep connective tissues (e.g., fascia) in order to improve flexibility and joint mobility. While not "easy", careful attention and support for individual anatomy make this practice accessible to students of all ages and experience levels. The slower pace and quiet stillness of a Yin yoga fosters a sense of calm and relaxation. Instructor: Roberta Forester
