If you want to indulge in a little self-care this Spring, but don’t have the time to travel, leave the kids, or spend a ton of cash, join us for Hot Asana’s second ever “stay-cay” Yoga Retreat.
This “Stay-Cay” will be held at our (WEST LOCATION). We will start with a 75 minute Yin Yoga class that will focus on Letting Go. Just as we see the new growth on plants and trees we must learn to move through transitions, exhale things that have run their course, and make room to inhale the fresh and the new. Yin yoga taps into the same energy (meridians) as Acupuncture. Emphasis on the meridians of the season will be incorporated into the practice.
Yin yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body. Yin yoga is the perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular “Yang” styles of yoga.
After a short break and healthy snack, we will end with a 75 minute Restorative yoga practice. The goal is to experience relaxation and restoration. The props assist in exerting very little effort during the practice. By coming into the feeling of being fully supported by the props, your body and nervous system can relax completely.
People often ask what the difference between Yin and Restorative Yoga are. Maybe this excerpt from a Yoga Journal article written by Josh Summers can help: “ Yin aims to put specific kinds of stress on the tissues to promote strength, hydration, and mobility, restorative yoga seeks to prop the body in such a way that a deep relaxation can occur without stressing the body in any significant way. Two different intentions; two different experiences”
