Healthy Living: Restorative Yoga with Yin

  • Raleigh-Cary JCC 12804 Norwood Road Raleigh, NC, 27613 United States (map)

Please join us for Restorative (meditative) Yoga with Yin (deep stretching) at the JCC.

Sundays:  May 13, May 27, June 10, June 24  

Restorative with Yin is a practice of holding postures for longer durations to increase flexibility and mobility followed by restorative yoga poses with meditation. 

Yin Yoga is designed to help you sit longer, and more comfortably, in meditation by stretching connective tissue around the joints (mainly the knees, pelvis, sacrum, and spine). A passive practice, Yin Yoga involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for 3 to 5 minutes, accessing deeper layers of fascia.

Restorative Yoga allows you to completely rest and relax while healing your body from the inside. During this yoga practice, we will hold poses for longer times and be seated or lying down during the class. Poses will include light twists, seated forward folds and gentle supported backbends.

Target audience: All levels, anyone recovering from an injury.
