Donation-Based Yin Yoga


Stacey discovered yoga stumbling into a vinyasa yoga class by accident, thinking it was a coffee shop. Feeling like it was a sign to get healthy and completely in awe by watching the students flowing in unison and then observing their complete bliss in savasana, the next day she started taking classes. Fast forward 30 years, she’s still an active practitioner! Born and raised in San Francisco, she has taken classes all around the bay area – in various yoga studios, gyms, and has even taken a college course for a semester on yoga. After settling down in the East Bay, getting married, and having 3 kids, she decided that one of her callings was to teach yoga. She received her 200 yoga teacher training (Yoga Alliance RYT 200) in a precious and small setting under the direct tutelage of Amelia Andaleon of Spiritually Fit Yoga, with an emphasis on Hatha and Yin yoga. To her, yoga is more than physical practice and is a moment in which she can be fully present and honest with herself, where the mind refreshes and resets. Her yin classes are focused on inner awareness, mobility and stretching, with a distinct focus on the breath – creating a deeply meditative internal space for the practitioner. Class Description: For optimum flexibility and health our bodies not only need active movement and muscle engagement (the yang practice), but our bodies also need the unique opening that only yin yoga can offer. Yin yoga practices long-held, seated poses to open the deeper tissues of the body: the ligaments, joints and connective tissues. Students are offered an opportunity to surrender, slow down and come back to balance. The Yin practice offers mental and emotional benefits as you become quiet, still and mindful of the present. This class is appropriate for all levels. Please dress in layers as in traditional yin yoga, the room will not be heated so that the muscles are cool, so that the stress of the posture can soak deeper into the connective tissues. Although some may think this is a passive yoga, it can be challenging to embrace the stillness and hold a pose for a longer period of time.
