MELLOW MOON YOGA

GENTLE YOGA
All levels

Mellow Moon Yoga focusing on the Yin (moon) energy in the body. Yin yoga is a form of Hatha yoga. Yin yoga centers on holding poses for prolonged periods to stretch the connective tissue and deepen meditation. Some believe Yin yoga is the oldest form of Hatha yoga, since it is the ideal method of physical conditioning for prolonged meditation, which was the principal concern of ancient yogic practitioners. This mostly-on-the-floor, meditative and mellow practice is meant to help you stretch, relax and unwind into your evening, ending your day balanced and calm.

YOGA MECHANICS

All levels

Come to this class and try to pretend you’ve never done yoga before, come into each pose with the hope of exploring them in the moment as if they’re brand new. Modify and use props you’ve never used, work hard in places you avoid, and soften in places where you hold yourself so rigid. It’s truly remarkable when you make that shift to a beginner’s mind. Poses that you used to think were easy became incredibly challenging, as Charles helps you peel away the layers with each technical instruction. This approach will help you improve and achieve other postures that you’ve been stuck in for years and help guide you to your ‘AH-HA’ moment.
