Yin Yoga

Wednesdays, January 12th – March 30th 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
(There is no snack included with this option)

Yin Yoga is a slower pace style of yoga that incorporates principles of traditional Chinese medicine with asanas or postures. Yin Yoga consists of fewer poses which work the connective tissue of the body; the tendons, ligaments and fascia. These are areas of our bodies we do not always consider but every healthy body needs the stretching until one reaches their place of resistance, holding still and holding for time. This creates a strong mind in that we learn to be mindful of our movements and our thoughts. Working these parts of our bodies assists individuals with arthritis, stiffness and assists with mobility issues; which includes most 55+people. Yin Yoga is a practice that helps to control breath, teaches a deeper breath which calms body and mind. Yin Yoga balances the Yoga Flow.

You must come with your own yoga mats. Yoga blocks are optional for this class.

What is Functional Rehab you ask?

This program is geared for those who are looking at revitalizing their well-being through a 30 minute 1 on 1 session with an older adult functional rehab therapist.

We will work with older adults from the fit to the frail who want to revitalize their bodies.

Each person we work with will start with a telephone lead meet & greet so we can discuss their plan of action.
