Yin Yoga

This class is taught by:

Karlene L

Why do I practice yoga?
Initially, I was allured by asana because it offered what felt like a trifecta of post-class benefits: the endorphin release of a workout, the ease of a massage and the calm of meditation. My practice offers me time to slow down & marinate in sensation - I'm more capable of creating space between me and the constant pull of stimuli that surrounds my life.  In these moments, I become more attune to a wiser, stronger sensibility within myself and listen to my intuition's soliloquy. In short, time on the mat makes for a better me off the mat.

What do you enjoy about teaching yoga?
The energy exchange – the collective positive & peaceful vibe that may be present in the beginning of class but more strongly grounds and reverberates within the room toward Savasana.

What's the funniest thing you've ever said while teaching or practicing?  Spread your head.
If you had a superpower what would it be?
To stay connected to my practice while being a mother of three, supportive and encouraging friend, sister, daughter, wife and educator.
Additionally, I'd appreciate the ability to make it snow whenever I need solace.
Immerse yourself in the tranquility of a guided visual meditation as your body seeks stillness and your joints + connective tissue renew the body's natural moisture. Join Karlene and our community as we aim to increase the viscosity of your joints by increasing your natural creation of hyaluronic acid, in other words, soak your connective tissue in the body's natural moisture; in addition, improve circulation in the joints + flexibility. The focus of this Yin class will be on the Superficial Back Line (SBL). The SBL consists of a line of fascia that starts at the plantar surface (bottom) of the foot and travels up the entire posterior (back) side of the body, moving up over the head and finishes at the brow bone. This is a non-strength based practice that relies on mental patience, self compassion and a youthful curiosity.
