    Finding Equanimity: Animal Yin Yoga

    Andrea Kwiatkowski

    Many yoga positions are inspired by animals. This class includes Yin poses, some of which are a bit more fierce, a little less gentle, thank you may be used to in a Yin class. The class focus is equanimity, found from working through themes of nature and animals, who will show us aspects of ourselves, both on and off the mat. Starting from the transformative butterfly through to the sometimes less than good-natured camel, through to the caterpiller which transforms back to the butterfly. Expect to be deeply moved and transformed, as well as finding stillness through Yin. You will need a bolster and/or cushions.
