Yin Yoga class details!
Yin Yoga is relatively new. Yin Yoga is about "stretching" the connective tissues and allowing the Qi to flow, so it is done very slowly with poses being held from 3 to 20 minutes*. You can click here to read about it on my blog. In these classes we will follow this general schedule: start with breathing, then do a little warms up stretch, possibly move onto a psoas stretch, with time to do from 7 to 10 Yin poses (*holding poses from 2 to 4 minutes), taking time for shavasana, and maybe ending with a few yang poses to get our bodies back to moving.
Many people like to use props when practicing Yin Yoga. If you have props you may want to have them available to you.
Information regarding what we do in a stretch class!
In our stretch classes we focus on stretching the muscles and joints. We are not always on the ground, sometimes we stand and stretch. Depending on where you are doing it you may want a mat and a towel for cushioning the knees. Often props used in a yoga practice can be used in a stretch class.
Our Zoom Stretch classes allow you to see Terre, the instructor, live. You may choose to have your camera on, too, so she can see you, but that is optional and completely up to you. What we do, in case you do want to be seen, is, we start with standing stretches, then we move down to the floor - at which time we adjust our devices so we can be seen on the floor. Again, transmitting a video is not required, but you have the option.

Due to the fact that there are so many unknowns with the coronavirus I will not be teaching in person until further notice.
