Yin Yoga consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine. These areas are rich in connective tissues. The poses are held for up to five minutes, sometimes longer. Yin Yoga can help to alleviate pain and tension, relieve stress and anxiety and improve your overall well-being. 

Chair Yoga | Wednesdays | 1:15pm – 2:15pm

Chair Yoga is a gentle form of yoga that’s done while seated or using a chair for balance, which makes the practice more accessible. Chair yoga can improve your flexibility, concentration and strength, while boosting your mood and reducing stress and joint strain.
