Carol teaches Yin Yoga to adults at yoga studios, for corporate wellness events, for professional growth and with groups of colleagues who wish to practice together.
A Yin Yoga class consists of a series of passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body and which are held for about three minutes. This gently loads the connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia. The physical aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. It also helps to regulate the body's flow of energy and involves conscious use of the breath. So, this is not an energetic work out, but it can be quite challenging. Keeping in the same postures for a period of time can be very calming and gives us the opportunity to tune into the connections between the body, mind, emotions and energetic aspects of our selves.
