The Autumnal Equinox is one of four days (two equinoxes and two solstices) throughout the year that mark the beginning of a new season. This workshop will welcome in the season of Autumn. The word "equinox" is derived from Latin and means "equal night". On the day of an equinox, day and night are of approximately equal length all over the world, as the Earth's rotational axis is neither tilted away from nor towards the Sun.
Yin Yoga is an approach to practice that targets the dense connective tissue in our body, and helps to restore and maintain the range of motion in our joints. Floor postures are passively held for longer periods of time with a moderate level of sensation. Yin is a fantastic complement to more dynamic activities such as Ashtanga or other power/Vinyasa yoga practices, which generally target our muscles with dynamic movement. The stillness of Yin practice helps to balance our energy and can invite meditative reflection.
If you are practicing at home, gather a selection of blankets and pillows, cushions and a cozy quiet place in your home to enjoy this live stream class. Steve will lead and guide you throughout. This class is suitable for everyone, no prior yoga experience is needed.
