Fascia Yoga is based on traditional yoga with the addition of training elements which have most recently been researched and found to be extremely beneficial for health, fitness and youthfulness. Four exercise modes for fascia renewal are the focus of fascia yoga: hydration, bouncing, sensory refinement and full body stretches. The latter two modes are already present in yoga. Adding hydration (by foam rolling) and bouncing (by pulsing and varying movements in a yoga pose) complements any yoga practice toward toned muscles and a healthy, pain free, and youthful body. *No experience necessary.

Restorative Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga moves slower and utilizes longer holds of seated and supine postures to target the ligaments, joints, and fascia of the body. Yin Yoga builds inner strength by cooling and calming holistically the mind, body & spirit. Props are used to create safe alignment and the ability to relax into each posture, and the postures are held for 2-5 minutes.
Restorative yoga focuses on relaxation and renewal along with effortlessness and ease. It is a therapeutic style of yoga that uses props to provide a completely supportive environment for total relaxation. The more your body is supported in poses the deeper the sense of relaxation.
Our Restorative Yin yoga classes help to soothe your nervous system, quiet your mind, and release deeply held tension. *No experience necessary. Suitable for all levels, ages and body types including those with chronic conditions and women who are pregnant.
