Affirmatively Yin

This yoga practice focuses not only on the physical practice of yin poses but also incorporates positive affirmations. In this class, you will be guided through slow, meditative movements, holding yin poses to promote flexibility and deep relaxation while incorporating affirmations to cultivate a positive mindset and emotional well-being. It’s a holistic approach that combines the physical benefits of yin yoga with the mental and emotional benefits of positive affirmations.


Yin yoga is a slow-paced and passive style of yoga that involves holding postures for an extended period, typically ranging from 3 to 5 minutes or even longer. Unlike more dynamic and active forms of yoga, such as vinyasa or power yoga, yin yoga targets the connective tissues, such as ligaments, tendons, and fascia, rather than focusing on the muscles.

The practice of yin yoga is rooted in Taoist philosophy and the concept of yin and yang, where yin represents the passive, receptive, and cooling aspects, while yang represents the active, dynamic, and heating aspects. In yin yoga, postures are often seated or reclined, and practitioners are encouraged to relax their muscles as much as possible, allowing gravity to gently stretch the connective tissues.

Yin yoga is known for its meditative and introspective qualities, promoting a sense of stillness and inner awareness. It can be a complement to more yang-like styles of exercise and is often used to improve flexibility, increase circulation, and release tension in the body. Additionally, the prolonged holds in Yin yoga can also have a calming and soothing effect on the mind.

What is Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is as much a spiritual practice as it is a physical practice. Yin & Restorative Yoga allow you to find stillness in both your mind and your body so that you can begin to discover that which you truly are and that which can never be changed. You are not your body and you are not your mind. You are the infinite hidden within. This is a physical and spiritual practice of self-realization.
