Yin Yoga Class with Denise Kaufman

Friday, August 1st | 7:00-9:00PM

$25 if paid by July 25th, $30 After

Yin Yoga is the slow, deep practice of mostly floor postures that stretch, stimulate and heal the joints of the hips and spine. With a wonderful world music mix to inspire us, we will begin with some Hawaiian hula wisdom, unwind and open with deep stretches and end in a luminous savasana.

Saturday, August 2nd 11:00am-2:00pm (break) 2:30-5:30pm $55 if paid by July 26th, $65 after

In this workshop we’ll introduce the anatomical and philisophical foundation of Yin Yoga, as well as sink deeply into the yummy yin experience. We’ll spend a few minutes examining original photographs of human bones to increase our understanding of the wide differences in human joint structure and how those differences affect our yoga practice. While releasing into our stretches, we’ll also explore the concepts of tension/compression, axis/extremeties, connective tissue and joint contracture. Understanding these principles helps free us from seeing postures as static ideals and allows our practice to flow our unique bodies in a spirit of freedom, contentment and gratitude.With some hula wisdom, unwind and open with deep stretches and end in a luminous savasana.

Denise has been exploring yoga, movement, energy flow and community connectedness for over 40 years. Merry Prankster, musician, yogini and dedicated surfer, her teaching is a blend of insight, clarity, humor and compassion. Denise considers Yin Yoga an essential foundational practice and she loves guiding her students into its deep, nourishing flow.
