Southern Yin
In a Yin Yoga class, you will hold a pose for 3-5 minutes. When holding a pose for longer periods of time the practitioner is able to get into the deeper parts of the body, the Yin parts. Tendons, ligaments, and joints are exercised, not stretched and the benefits of Yin are endless. We'll focus on the spine, forward folding, back bending, twisting, and side flexion, as well as the hips. As good as it will be for the body, a Yin practice can be challenging for the mind, because we rest into the poses. You will be talked through each posture and gently guided from one pose to another with more yang like movements to help the continuation of the blood flow to these yin-like places in the body.

 

Time: 75 or 90 min class

 

Temp: 90-95 degrees with 30-40% humidity

 

Southern Flow & Yin

This class offers both the dynamic movement of vinyasa flow and the meditative stillness of yin. About half of the class consist of a mindful breath and alignment centered flow to build strength and flexibility, challenging your balance and concentration, getting you out of your head and into your body. The other half of class finds you down on the mat holding yin poses for longer periods of time, targeting the connective tissues of the body to help release deeply stored tension. These two styles combined can very transformative. Room will be at minimal heat (85 degrees)

Southern Stretch

Southern Stretch is a restorative practice that targets tightness in your body and tension in your mind.  It is a refreshing way to enhance your flexibility and create a well-rounded daily practice.  You will use props such as blocks, bolsters and blankets to support your practice and access the nooks and crannies of your body. The effect is that you leave class feeling more open, more content, and more possibility in your whole being.
