observed as yoga holidays or days to enjoy rest

supplemental yoga class
This 60-minute passive stretching yoga class is the perfect supplement to an active practice. It is designed to help release tight connective tissue safely and slowly. Suitable for everyone.
WHY A SUPPLEMENTAL PRACTICE?
The Ashtanga practice is a dynamic form of yoga designed to generate heat. Heat helps to stretch and strengthen muscles and bones; it detoxifies organs and blood. Although there are many health benefits, to create balance it can be very effective to supplement our active practice with a slower, more passive kind of yoga which helps release tight connective tissue. Connective tissue surrounds and supports our muscles and all of the tissues of the body, it needs to be stretched carefully and slowly. If connective tissue becomes hardened it can restrict your flexibility, which may be keeping you from progressing in practice or putting you at risk for injury.
