Yin Yoga Will Teach Your Dog New Tricks

Unknown

After a decade of visiting Omega, a retreat center located in Rhinebeck NY, for Yogis and the like, who knew that just South of the dining hall a unassuming wooded path leads one to discover a tranquil Cedar Pavilion. The perfect place to spend the next week deepening my understanding and practice of Yin Yoga. So what is Yin Yoga and why would one practice it? It is commonly referred to as the quiet practice and in many ways it is complimentary to a Hatha yoga practice. Although you may find yourself in a familiar seated pose in a Yin class, due to it’s contrasting approach, these poses have been renamed, for example, what we know as pigeon pose is called the sleeping swan. Where as Hatha Yoga is a yang practice that emphasizes strength and endurance, in Yin we meet on the mat to simply surrender to gravity’s pull, to emphasize a stretching the fascia or connective tissue. As we see in the ancient Yin and Yang symbol, depicted by the white and black dots, both parts contain the seed of the other; meaning one can not exist without the other. Such is the duality of life, but in the recesses of this gentle practice there is an opening, a portal to access one’s connection to the eternal. Yin is synonymous with words like passive, feminine, soft, yielding and surrender, and this is exactly what will be asked of you on the mat. Compared to a traditional seated meditation, Yin Yoga is simply a mind-body meditation, a mindful dance between stillness and movement. Poses are held for longer periods, typically five minutes, and sometimes longer.

New WEDNESDAY classes Starting 6/10 and New FRIDAY class starting 6/12

We are really excited to be offering some new classes this summer lead by some familiar Yoga Sol teachers. Students have been asking for more “slow” and “gentle” classes… so we’ve got some more to offer…

WEDNESDAYS  9:30-11am Restorative Yin Flow with Kristy Cohen

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of timewith the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, Yin aims at cultivating awareness of one’s inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.

WEDNESDAYS 7-8:15pm Reboot & Recover with Michelle Garrison Hough

Do you run, cycle, or spin? Cross train and improve your performance with some yoga TLC. Kickboxing, boot camp, TRX and Crossfit got you tired, sore or tied up in knots? Or maybe you need to breathe, stretch and recover after gardening or hunching over your laptop? This class is perfect for athletes as well as less active people who need to recover from the strain of repetitive motions which tax the body. The class incorporates active and flowing postures, as well as passive, supported postures, all designed to unwind strain and tension in the body. We’ll also relax the mind by finishing with supported savasana and meditation.

FRIDAYS 9:30-11am Gentle Hatha with Ali Alvarez

A gentle class designed to help you open up restrictions in your body
with easeful movement and attention to detail. Floor and chair work is incorporated into this class.
