Service Description

Tuesdays 6:00 - 7:15 pm (Beginner/Intermediate) Yin Yoga is known as “the practice of quiet power”. All postures are practiced on the floor and are generally held for a long period of time, usually three to five minutes. Props are used to support the body so as to release tension along with breath. Students of yin experience an increased ability to calm the body and mind and a dramatic increase of flexibility when practiced with consistency. The deep relaxation that is often experienced in yin is very restorative and can lead to a greater sense of well being. Instructor: Rebekka Cook came to yoga from being a gymnast as a child, flexibility was always part of her life. After being injured in her teens she was searching for something else and she found yoga was the perfect “fit”. Rebekka believes yoga is something you take with you day to day, providing the tools (such as breath) to help ease emotional states. Her favorite type of yoga is Yin though that was not always the case. When she first started to practice felt she needed the physical movement because she was not ready to “face herself.” Eventually she found that once she stopped chasing her thoughts she was able to settle into her body and allow herself to relax and accept where she was in the present moment. Rebekka also teaches at PranaShanti Yoga
