Comunity Yin Yoga
Wednesdays 6:00 until September 30th moves to Mondays 6:00
Come together to honor the upcoming Yin season by showing up for your Self, slowing down and becoming rooted in the breath- that which naturally occurs without effort.
In Yin Yoga we take time to settle into seated postures with support by yoga bolsters (big "pillows" used for this particular style of yoga), blankets and foam blocks.
Once settled, we use the breath to relax deeply. By focusing on the breath... in and out... we are able to quiet the mind chatter. The mind chatter, over-bearing thoughts, worrying- all of which are present within all of us will began to dissolve away leaving you with a clear mind, relaxed body and soul filled with love. Each class ends with a Yoga Nidra practice, commonly referred to as a "yogic sleep". In this portion, I will guide you through a meditation with a strong focus on feeling present in your own body and relaxing the business of the mind.
Remember who you are- you are your heart.
YOU ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS.
This is a donation-based practice made to be affordable by all within our Louisville Community. A suggested donation of $5-$20 will be humbly accepted- but a donation is NOT required to participate in the class.
