Are you curious about Yin Yoga? Whether you practice it regularly or have simply seen it on our class schedule, you probably have a few questions already.
Like, what is Yin yoga?
Yin Yoga is a passive yet stimulating practice with an emphasis on your body’s deeper tissues and an intimate exploration of Self. Through Yin postures we promote the mobility of Qi through the Meridians and build fluidity and elasticity throughout our body’s connective tissues. With longer holds and fewer transitions we slow down, complimenting our Yang (active + dynamic) workouts and busy lives.
In Yin Yoga 101 we will dive deep into the what, why and how of this practice. Topics we will visit include:
Yin vs Yang characteristics
Philosophy of Yin
The Benefits of Yin Yoga: physically, energetically and mentally
Overview of Qi and The Meridians
Yin as a container for mindfulness practices
Exploration of Yin postures
Use of props + modifications
Roe Johnson is a Vinyasa turned Yin yoga teacher at Bala yoga. Her sincere love of Yin stems from an appreciation of stillness and all if offers. In a society that is constantly stimulated, Roe is grateful to create the space for a moment of calm.
After completing her 200-hour Training at Asheville Yoga Center, Roe began teaching Vinyasa and a Yin inspired Stretch class — this is where her personal study of Yin Yoga began. After joining the Bala Yoga team, Roe attended Pam Chang’s 50-Hour Yin Training, and most recently studied with Sarah Powers.
Roe is incredibly enthusiastic about sharing her love, experience and knowledge of Yin with you in Yin Yoga 101! You can also (almost always) find her at Bala Fremont’s front desk — Don’t hesitate to say hi + ask you Yin related questions!
