Yin Yoga with Terri
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga exercise with Asanas postures that are held for longer periods of time. Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body - the tendons, fascia, and ligaments with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. This is a meditative approach to yoga; it’s goals are awareness of inner silence, bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
