Join Daniele Dagenais as we explore the 5 elements of Yin yoga touching base on the 5 elements we all have within us arranged slightly different.

In this slow, gentle, nourishing practice poses are held for 3 or more minutes, created deep within the joints, ligaments and connective tissue.

Yin Yoga also allows us to become more in tune with our emotions, and how they affect our natural rhythm of chi (our energy) that moves through our energy channels (meridians).
We are energetic beings and creating balanced energetic flow is an important part in maintaining our overall health.

Hot Stone Restorative Yoga Workshop
