Yin and Yang Yoga
Sundays / Yin class: 5 p.m. / Yang class: 6:15 p.m. /

2nd floor Gathering Room
March 24-May 5 (except Easter) / Led by Karen McCall
Yin - The 5 p.m. class is gentle and slow yoga. All poses will be performed on the floor. It is very relaxing and will cultivate stillness of mind, body and spirit. Expect dimmed lights, soft music and longer holds. This class focuses on stretching connective tissue that often causes restrictions in movement.

Yang - In the 6:15 p.m. class, the poses flow one to another in sync with your breath. Class begins with Sun Salutations each week; therefore, in this class, the student needs to be able to get all the way down to his or her belly on the floor and quickly return to standing multiple times. This class is energetic and movement-focused.
