New Yin Yoga class
Wednesdays 4:30 - 5:45

4th Street Yoga, Berkeley

Yin Yoga is a meditative yoga practice that allows us the opportunity to stop and listen to the wisdom of our bodies. Floor poses are held for 3 - 5 minutes targeting the body’s connective tissues, bones and joints, promoting healing and fluidity in those tissues. Yin poses stimulate the flow of energy through the body’s meridian passageways, removing blockages and nourishing and revitalizing our organ systems.

Combining Yin poses with restorative relaxation, this class offers an experience of deep release, rejuvenation and overall wellbeing in body and mind. The class is especially beneficial for those with hip and low back issues. Yin yoga is a natural complement to more active yoga practices. No experience required. Open to all.
