Meditative Yin Yoga
Tuesdays 6 -7:30 pm Be Well Studios North Conway
Yin yoga allows us to work the other half, the deeper "yin" tissues of our ligaments, joints, deep fascial networks, even our bones. Yin is a nourishing and balancing practice for an over achieving, stressed out world. Moving into a pose until you find your edge, poses are passive, and held in stillness for 3-6 minutes. This practice unblocks the flow of energy, lengthens muscles through stretching the fascia that wraps muscle fiber, makes ligaments thicker and stronger through stimulating collagen production, and improves joint mobility. Staying in stillness for time also invites you to find quiet, meditative, head and heart space.This practice is good for ALL bodies, whether you are a tri-athlete, a weekend warrior, sit at a desk all day, or anyone in between.
Morning Flow and Meditation
Be Well Studios, North Conway Wednesdays at 8:15 am
This flow class will begin with pranayama breath work and brief meditation to open the energy body and quiet the mind.
We will move into mindful asana flow practice, creating some warmth in the body, with a focus on staying present without judgement or expectation.
The last part of our time includes a guided 15 minute meditation, and savasana.
Be Well Studios, North Conway Thursdays at 8:15 am - 9:30
Class will begin with 45 minutes of a warming vinyasa flow, waking the body up and connecting breath with movement.
After invigorating the body and mind, we will move into Yin yoga, a passive practice of longer held poses that work with connective tissues, fascia and joints.
The Yin style draws from traditional Chinese medicine, to open meridians in the body and enhance the flow of Chi (life force energy).
This class is the perfect balance of movement and stillness to begin your day.
