Yin/Restorative › Lucy McCarthy

Yin yoga is a quieting, floor-based practice in which you hold poses for a length of time helping you drop deeper and play with your edge. Restorative yoga allows your body to experience deep relaxation through a series of long, passive stretches that are fully supported by props to begin releasing habitual, long-held tension.
