Join us for these FREE ONLINE sessions over the spring semester as part of our #WellnessWednesdays series! Faculty, Staff and Students may participate, and Community Members are welcome!
Yin and restorative yoga poses will stretch the body gently. You might want to bring pillows, blankets, or rolled towels to the sessions. We will focus on the breath and find some stillness in this practice. Have you ever wanted to try yoga but are intimidated by the vinyasa movements or are uncomfortable practicing? This practice is much different, as Yin yoga is a gentle stretching of the body-- once we get into a pose (asana), we will hold it for a few minutes, letting the body relax. Many of these will be floor poses that can be modified with blocks, blankets and pillows or bolsters (restorative yoga). Sessions will be practiced through live online Zoom sessions, and on your own. Please let the instructor know beforehand if you have any injuries or recent surgeries. Please also fill out this release form before participating (you do not need to fill this out more than once).
