    A form of yogic exercise, Hatha attempts to balance mind and body through physical postures (asanas), purification practices, controlled breathing (pranayama), and relaxation and meditation.

    Yin Yoga @ Mudra Yoga Studio
    Jun 1 @ 4:00 pm – 5:15 pm

    Yin Yoga is the perfect complement to the more active Yang Yoga practices and is appropriate for all levels of experience. This practice develops new depths in your postures, deeper ranges of motion and an increased flow of energy that is achievable by focusing on the deeper tissues of the body. Yin Yoga targets the areas between the knees and the navel, and postures are typically held for several minutes and are done seated or reclined. Create a deeper balance and expand your existing yoga practice by adding Yin Yoga to your routine. Please note the TIME CHANGE for the class.
