Yin/Restorative with Soothing Live Violin Music (Friday 4pm- 5:30pm)
What to expect:We all know how Yin/Restorative classes help take us to that next level of relaxation while the body is slowly opening up.
Research shows that music does not affect the way you feel, but does create certain movements in the brain that induce certain emotions. As we let the body open up, soothing live violin music will help you take you to that next level of letting go, not just with physically, emotionally and mentally as well. We’ll provide you a safe place for you to release any unwanted tension that the body and the mind may be holding in. Prepare yourself to truly unplug and allow yourself fully inhale the power of the soothing live violin
If it is chilly, bring socks and sweatshirt. You will definitely still feel the stretching and body will slowly open up. You will continue to focus on your breath throughout. You may even be a little sore the next day from the deep stretching.
