Cooling the Summer Fires: A Yin Yoga Series with Tricia Cunniff Fridays, Aug 16- Sept 20th; 9:30-10:30 Firefly Foxboro Studio
Yin Yoga is a floor-based yoga practice that involves long holds for up to five minutes. These long holds target the connective tissue in the body to improve and maintain healthy ranges of motion. Yin Yoga is also very meditative in style, with the long holds offering an opportunity to practice keeping the mind steady while observing the thoughts and sensations. Yin Yoga also draws on Meridian theory from Traditional Chinese Medicine, which is concerned with the movement of Qi (energy, or prana) around the body via the Meridians (energetic channels). The poses we practice are thought to stimulate the meridian lines that run through the body.
Yin Yoga is the perfect complementary practice to a busy summer calendar, helping to restore and balance our energy by encouraging us to turn inwards and towards stillness to counteract the late nights, long days, and excitement for life that summer carries with it.
Over the next six weeks, this mini-series will focus on finding cooling balance in the heat of the Summer as we transition into Fall. Class meets every Friday from August 16- September 20th, 9:30-10:30am in the Small Studio. Please dress comfortably.
