Yin Yoga Classes In Squamish

Discover Deep Stretching and Relaxation

Yin Yoga is a contemplative practice that targets deep connective tissues like ligaments and joints. It involves holding poses for longer durations, typically three to five minutes, to encourage a deeper stretch and greater flexibility. At Shala Yoga, our Yin Yoga classes are perfect for those seeking to release tension, improve flexibility, and cultivate a peaceful, meditative state.
