STRETCH® is a slow Yin-inspired deep stretching deliberate style of yoga with poses that are held for longer periods of time; three to five minutes is typical. Yin Stretch poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues; these are the tendons, fascia, and ligaments. The goal is to increase circulation in the joints thus improving flexibility and mobility. Stretch sequences are designed to improve the flow of the subtle energy said in Chinese medicine to run through the meridian pathways of the body. Yin is a more meditative approach to yoga, bringing to light a universal, interconnected quality. Designed for all levels. Room heated to 92-95 degrees.
