When I was at my team retreat in Nicaragua, I experienced my first Yin Yoga class. I used to be a hardcore yogi. I went to class 6 days a week and was doing all kinds of crazy things with my body. After a while the practice became a little too reflective for me during a time when I think I needed more movement and excitement in my life. So, I stopped yoga. Since April though, I have had the pull to slowly get back to my practice. I knew I didn’t want to go back to vinyasa. There was something about it that kind of practice that just didn’t feel right. That is where yin yoga has come into play. Every Tuesday night I feel so excited to go to my yin yoga class at 8:30pm. It is a long and slow class with deep stretches and it’s really challenging despite the sleepy vibes. It has really been a wonderful change in my life and a much needed time to refocus, calm down and put the phone away. If there is one in your area, I highly recommend it. Nasmaste.
