Falling for Yin Yoga with Aly Daly
Saturday, September 28 2:00 – 4:00pm $30
As our world becomes quieter, cooler, and darker, so too do we. This is a wonderful opportunity to look inward; the perfect time to honour the need to be still and notice any internal shifts. The long, supported holds in Yin Yoga encourage the body and mind to relax and release tension on all levels. It creates a gentle traction and compression which helps to flush out toxins and lubricate the joints while releasing the connective tissues. In this rejuvenating practice, you will give yourself the chance to rest in stillness and activate the parasympathetic nervous system for an abundance of healing on all levels.

The family here at Yoga Within is always trying to think of ways to improve our schedule & classes to better fit what classes & workshops you want to see & attend. The most helpful way to do this is by your early registration for our Registered Classes & Workshops. We need a minimum number of people pre-registered for each class & workshop. Pre-registrations help us determine what classes you are still excited about & interested in & what we will keep on our future schedule. While we do our best to make as many of our classes open to drop-ins, we need to do as much pre-registration as we can so we can ensure your favourite classes run & stay on the schedule. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
