Yin Yoga with Heather
The fourth Friday of every month, Heather Jefferson brings Yin Yoga to Rolling Brook. Yin is a fantastic treat for mind, body and soul. During a Yin practice, students are guided into long-held, supported poses that focus on stillness, coolness, and yielding. Yin poses offer passive stretching of our deeper connective tissues. Poses are designed to mobilize and strengthen our joints, ligaments and fascial networks for a long-lasting release of tension and tightness. This workshop is truly a nourishing experience.
