FREE Yin Class


This class is taught by:

Barb Williams

Barb has worked at a fitness club for over 20 years, and had taken every kind of group fitness class listed on the schedule. About 15 years ago she saw a yoga class on the schedule, and she knew from that first class that she had to have more yoga in her life. She began by taking more classes, and by helping teach a kids yoga class in the studio. Then she created a before-school yoga club at the school where she teaches 2nd grade. This year she traveled to Sarasota Florida and studied for months under Sue Marcus, a registered Iyengar Yoga instructor. In April she earned her RYT-200 from Spirit Path Yoga, studying with Margi Clifford and Margo Sorum. Barb’s style of yoga is ever evolving, as she continues to take classes and workshops and learn more about the wide variety of types of yoga. She has a deep appreciation for what yoga can offer, physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Her other interests include her 2 teenagers, hiking, and learning fingerstyle guitar. She loves sharing her love of yoga with children, as they play with it and make it their own. She looks forward to sharing her love of yoga with you.

Below is our description of a Yin Yoga class:
This is a practice that stays low to the floor, but works deep into the connective tissues, fascial networks and joint capsules of the body. Primary focus is placed on the pelvis. Postures are held for extended periods of time to allow for muscular release. Once muscles release, the deeper “yin” tissues of the body are able to receive the benefits of the posture. Because Yin Yoga targets ligaments, bones and joints, it is not recommended for those working with an active or recent injury. For many, this class provides a deep energetic release as well. 75 degrees.
