Mei Ling Ellis instructs the following:
Restorative Yin is yoga at its coolest, quietest, and stillest moments. This gentler, deeply nurturing style of Yin Yoga is a time for deep relaxation and healing. This class will have you on the floor most of the time, using as many props as needed to support you in relaxing into each posture with as little effort as possible. Poses are held for 2-5 minutes allowing joints and fascia to release while restoring balance to your mind, body, and spirit. This class will complement your Vinyasa practice and will open and release areas in need of more flexibility.
Due to the restorative nature of this class, late arrivals will not be granted studio access. Early arrival is strongly encouraged. Please allow extra time for parking and registration to ensure you arrive on time. Thank you.
