Yin Yoga for Lower Back, Hips, and IT Band: A Targeted Practice

Yin Yoga for Lower Back, Hips, and IT Band: A Targeted Practice with Sydney (Santoshi) MacInnis

Thursday, January 31 • 7:00–9:00 p.m.

Modernization brought furniture and, with it, large segments of time spent in sitting on furniture. Those factors contribute to a fixing of connective tissues in the lower body where the hips store and hold old emotions. In this workshop Santoshi will lead you through a sequence of long-held passive poses that are designed to stress those tissues. This stressing brings new and healthy sensations to the targeted tissues. Students can expect a feeling of ease and freshness following this workshop. Recommended for experienced Yin Yoga students with a minimum of six months of practice. Includes Yoga: Experienced Beginners and Intermediate/Advanced Students
