In the first portion of class, enjoy a more vigorous heat building flow, focusing on building strength and flexibility. Expect to elevate the heart rate and explore your edges mentally and physically.  The final portion of class will be slower, deeper stretches that will be held for 2-5 minutes.  These longer holds are designed to target the denser tissues of the body and thereby increase flexibility and mobility.  Yin poses are cooling to the body and calming to the nervous system.  Breath work, centering, meditation and intention setting will also be practiced to focus the mind and body.
