Yin Yoga with Lisa McCaskill, RYT, YYRT

Yin Yoga is a Taoist form of yoga that focuses on stretching the connective tissue of the body to promote better range of motion while also stimulating the flow of energy through the meridians; similar to Acupuncture. Yin poses are mostly floor poses that work to stretch the lower body. Poses are held for several minutes to give the connective tissue the needed time to stretch and release. Mindfulness meditation techniques and focused breathing are incorporated into the class.  Great class for athletes!

Suggested donation of $5-$10.  Donate what is right for you given your current financial situation.  Feel free to come to your first class for free to check it out.

You'll need to bring your own mat and wear stretchy clothes you can move easily in.  Some folks find the room to be a little cool at times so dress in layers and bring a blanket for shavasana if you have one.

Lisa received her certification to teach Yin Yoga in 2010 with Shala Worsley of the Asheville Yoga Center and is a Yin Yoga Registered Teacher (YYRT) with the Yin Yoga Institute. Lisa completed a 230 hour Therapeutic Teacher Training program at the Asheville Yoga Center in September 2012. More about Lisa and her Yin practice at www.yinwithlisa.com

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
