Teacher Training

Yin yoga is about mind, body and soul alignment.

Yin yoga stretches the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body.  Doing Yin Yoga increases circulation in the joints and improves flexibility as the poses stretch and exercise the bone and joint areas all while your mind is completely at ease.
