• Yin Yoga – Every Monday 6-7 p.m. The main goal of Yin Yoga is to open joints, stretch deep tissue and release deep, long held emotion.

Note: You will want to have a few pillows (couch, bed or throw pillows will work fine), as well as a blanket or two to ensure you are nice and comfy as well as fully supported for your practice.
