Patricia Blumenauer instructs the following:
Hot Yin-Yasa (All Levels)
This class is a hybrid of yang (active yoga) with yin (passive yoga). We will begin with the active portion of class to build strength, warmth and flow with fundamental yoga postures while relieving stress and tension by connecting breath with mindful movements. We will finish with yin (or passive yoga) to create flexibility, mindfulness and softness to release the connective tissues, create space and integrity in the joints and remove blockages to internal energy flow.
This class is suitable for all ages, abilities & physical conditions and will complement other active practices. This class is practiced in a room heated to 95 degrees and all levels are welcome.
