Yin Yoga

June 12, 2012

J.C. Peters—yogi, poet and spiritual romantic—knows exactly how hard Yin Yoga is, mentally and physically. In this blog post on, she explains why embracing our discomfort in class guides us in life as well, teaching us to embrace uncomfortable moments off the mat.  Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine, where many of us experience tightness from days spent sitting.


“Yin yoga teaches you how to really listen, you don’t get the opportunity to go in and out, jump around and find a distracted version of stillness within your practice. Yin is such a great compliment to other styles and your own personal life, because it brings long periods of time in an uncomfortable position, which then asks you to learn to “be” to “accept what is” in that given moment.” -Hope Zvara, read more here.


Move beyond the muscular and  the connective tissues to lengthen and stretch—join Stephanie on Friday at 9:45 or Sarah Lou on Sunday at 10:15 to get your Yin on!
