  • YIN RESTORATIVE YOGA for the Mindful Body with Anjali Rose 9am • Jackson Community Church
    This new yoga workshop series is for 6 weeks and focuses on bringing both relaxation to the mind, body and spirit, while activating healing in the joints, connective tissues and fascia of the body.  Tender joints are supported and stretched gently to stimulate the connective tissue by holding postures in a reclined or seated position for 3-5 minutes.  Yin Yoga is a still and passive practice.  Physically, we work the space between our knees and navel, the hips, pelvis and spine, to create space and mobility in our tightest areas.  Energetically, we open the body’s meridian system to allow the continuous flow of Qi (chi). Psychologically, we practice being, allowing and contentment to balance our active, stressful yang lives. This class is suitable for all levels.  If you have injuries, (which we all do) special emphasis is placed on supportive poses. Note: 6 weeks $60.
