What is Yin Yoga?
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise. Postures are held for longer periods of time than in other styles. Yin yoga targets the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body. Energetically, Yin yoga improves the energy flow, enhancing the flow of chi in the organs.

What is Restorative Yoga?
In a Restorative yoga practice, the focus is not on stretching or strengthening but on releasing. We release tension in the muscles and gently stimulate the organs through long-held poses designed to support and comfort. To achieve comfort a variety of props such as blankets, blocks, bolsters and eye pillows may be used. Restorative yoga allows us to relearn the art of relaxation while developing the skills and abilities to self-soothe. It enhances our healing capacity through helping us regulate the stress response and re-balance the nervous system.

What is Hatha Yoga?
The term is derived from the Sanskrit ha, meaning "sun," and tha, meaning "moon," leading to the common interpretation that Hatha practices are designed to unite and balance these two energies. In a Hatha Yoga session we focus on stretching, strengthening and balancing our bodies as well as focusing on our inward and outward breath during each posture. Postures change with every inward and outward breath.
