A core strengthening segment and meditative savasana are also included, helping you to find a beautiful balance between effort and ease. All levels.
Yin
Yin Yoga focuses on the slow, gentle, opening of the fascial layer of the body. The fascia is the connective tissue under the skin, which wraps the muscles, and holds the body together. Over time, chronic tightness of the fascia causes stiffness and inflexibility, restricting mobility and energy flow. Most of the postures are done seated or lying down, and focus on opening the back, hips and hamstrings. No prior yoga experience required.

Yin/Yang Yoga
The combination of passive(yin) and vigorous (yang) yoga practices, is rooted in the idea that, in order to create balance in your overall practice, you need to alternately exert and quiet yourself.  The yang practice consists primarily of a flowing sequences of standing postures, much like an extended Sun Salutation.
