If Vinyasa and Hatha are the yang of yoga, this deeply relaxing, restorative class is appropriately the yin. Each pose requires enough props so that you can melt into it without any effort and remain still for several minutes. These longer holds increase the elasticity of the joints and connective tissue. As you rest in each pose, you are challenged by finding but not exceeding your edge, and by keeping the mind as still as the body. The end result is a refreshing, beautiful practice.
