Morning yoga class consists of pranayama (breathing exercise), hatha vinyasa yoga, and relaxation. Evening or afternoon yoga is yin or/and restorative yoga class. Restorative yoga is a deeply relaxing style of yoga practice. It is a receptive practice, not an active practice. Unlike the vinyasa yoga where poses "flow" into one another, in restorative yoga poses are held from five to as long as twenty minutes. During this time, you are held in "shapes" while being supported with blankets, blocks, or bolsters (pillows). When you are in the poses you are completely supported in a particular shape, which helps achieve the desired benefit - it could open up your lungs, release tension in your lower back, or any of the other physical or psychological benefits. In any style of yoga, part of the practice is about letting go of the ego. Yin Yoga is specifically designed to exercise the ligaments and to regain space and strength in the joints. We hold poses 3-15 minits in yin yoga practice.
