Yoga NW. Yoga NW offers a body positive, inclusive atmosphere in the heart of NW Portland where everyone is welcome.
Yin Yoga is a passive yoga practice that works deeply into the body with longer-held poses – targeting the body’s tissues, releasing the fascia, lengthening and appropriately stressing the joints and bones, and improving joint mobility. This is not a complex physical practice but the longer held poses can become challenging physically and mentally. Energetically, Yin Yoga improves the flow of energy of the body, working with the meridian lines and enhancing the flow of chi (qi), bringing health to the whole body. Yin is a wonderful complement to active physical practices and release from the constant striving and business of life. Opposed to other goal-oriented practices, this practice is one of “allowing” and cultivating inner stillness.
Laela offers personal modifications to her students so they can practice safely and comfortably. She provides a calm and friendly atmosphere, sharing insights, poetry and other readings for inspiration, encouraging self-acceptance as personal growth.
Laela’s Yin Class is being currently offered Wednesdays 3:30-5 pm
