Contracture is the natural process that is happening all of the time in the body that is causing the ground substance within the connective tissues to shrink. It is what is happening when you feel stiff or tight. When we are immobile, often when we are sleeping, the connective tissues stiffen to keep the joints safely connected. This 30 minute experience in the morning is to use our body weight and gravity to gently reverse the contracture response and create more mobility within the connective tissues of the body. Yin yoga complements dynamic yoga practices, which primarily focus on change at the muscular level. In this class, passive postures are held typically for 3-5 minutes to allow for deep release. Focus on the breath and awareness of sensations that arise during the asana promote a meditative state. Challenge your threshold for stillness as you move inward to find balance and connect with an increased fluidity and stability of the joints and of the mind. Class Structure: There will be no warm up in this class. It is important that Yin poses are practices while the muscles are cold, which is why practicing in the morning is a great time to do it. We will move through 3-6 yin postures in this half hour class. Each posture will have various modifications to help you get into the pose safely. Each pose will be held between 3-5 minutes. You will end class in savasana as the teacher quietly leaves the Zoom meeting, leaving you to rest in savasana for as long as you wish.
