A yin yoga class featuring a meditation, wrist and shoulder release, twists, and hip opening. The theme for this short practice is digestion. Consider all of the ways you assimilate and take in the world around you: how do you feel? What are you taking in these days in terms of information and experiences? How are you processing each event? The invitation is to go into each pose and explore how it receives the shape. Breathe deeper to see how it might change your appreciation and sense of each posture.
