Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, fascia, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine, and poses are usually held for 5 minutes or more. Please note: Although Yin Yoga is passive, still and meditative, it is not Restorative yoga. The sensation of Yin is intense and sometimes uncomfortable, while the nature of Restorative is deep relaxation of muscles and body.

Grounded Kids Yoga is centered around a series of specific yoga poses rich and detailed in technique yet presented in a wholesome, light and humorous manner so that even the most hesitant will become grounded and embrace the elevating aspects of yoga. We balance the seriousness with playfulness and include games, music, art and guided visualizations in our classes. Our poses serve and honor the individual by providing specific tools for calming down or increasing energy, lightening up or centering through focus & balance as well as the wisdom to know when each is appropriate.
In Grounded classes, we share experiences and fulfill the universal desire to be connected and belong to a group. Our Together We Stand sequence engages the entire group to practice partner poses and inspire each other. Our expectations are high; we work hard, laugh whole-heartedly and build self-esteem and confidence in a safe, non-competitive space. When we are grounded, we have the stability and strength that it takes to handle any situation with grace, a positive attitude, and flexibility. That’s Elevation.
