Yin Yoga in Central Square

Yin Yoga balances the more active, robust style of yoga with slower, longer-held poses that target the connective tissues in our bodies — the ligaments, tendons, fascia. The rewards of a yin class include relaxed muscles, freedom in the joints, and a serene state of mind.

But in addition to its many physical and mental benefits, Yin Yoga can also help you to stimulate different meridians that run through your body. Yin Yoga is based on the ancient Chinese medicine channels that conduct energy throughout the body known as meridians. When the energy gets stuck in these channels it can cause a myriad of imbalances, diseases and issues. By opening and unblocking your channels through long, static holds targeting the different lines, Yin Yoga can help you to clear these channels and allow the energy in your body to flow freely once again.

This four-part series of two-hour yin workshops will focus on a different pair of Meridian channels each session:

  • Saturday, September 2: The Kidney and Bladder Meridians. Imbalances in these meridians can leave you feeling fearful, resistant to change, and lacking energy. By balancing the kidney and bladder meridians you will feel more hopeful, calm and peaceful.
  • Saturday, October 7: The Liver and Gall Bladder Meridians. Imbalances in these meridians can leave you feeling frustrated, angry and resentful. Balancing the Liver and Gall Bladder meridians will help you with decision making, determination and action.
  • Saturday, November 4: The Spleen and Stomach Meridians. Imbalances in these meridians can leave you feeling anxious, worried, and mistrustful. Balancing the spleen and stomach meridians will help with fairness, openness, and caring.
  • Saturday, December 2: The Lung, Large Intestine, Heart and Small Intestine Meridians. When these upper body meridians are not in balance, it can lead to sadness, grief, apathy and low self-esteem. Balancing them will help bring joy, warmth, vitality, excitement, and clarity of thought.

To ensure maximum attention, each workshop session is limited to eight students. To reserve a spot, you can make an online reservation for each session here.

Our Central Square studio is at 763 Massachusetts Avenue, just a couple blocks from the Central Square T stop as you walk toward City Hall, the Post Office, and Harvard. Our entrance is the big pair of double doors just to the right of the Life Alive restaurant. Buzz 7 on the intercom (to the left of the doors) to ring up for entry. We’re on the second floor.

We start opening our doors ten minutes before class so that you can get in a little early if you need to change, use the bathrooms, etc. before class. (But please don’t buzz more than 10 minutes early, or you might interrupt the last few minutes of someone else’s class.)

If it’s your first time at the studio, you should know that we already have mats for you (for free), so there’s no need to bring one of your own. Just show up in comfy clothes, and you’ll be good to go. (A water bottle is also a good idea.)
