CORE/YIN Fusion with Sarra Maddocks

As we all know, over time our bodies change and adapt to accommodate how they move
through the physical world. Often, repetitive physical patterns result in some undesirable
limitations caused by joint systems augmenting and muscle groups overcompensating or under
developing.
Core/Yin fusion is a practice designed to explore the connection of the body’s center line and
the relationship that integrity carries into musculoskeletal and joint systems so that we can
recognize and counteract the impact of repetitive motion strain. By spending time at the
beginning of class in a short sequence of core stabilization poses fused with breath and deep
abdominal muscle conditioning, our bodies are better able to understand the experience of
softening into a more classically led Yin based practice that intentionally reaches deep into the
connective tissues resulting in a reconditioning of fascia, ligaments and tendons. It’s like a drink
if water for your joints.
Any physical pursuit will eventually leave its imprint in your body, unfortunately these imprints
can show up as a restricted range of motion, shortening of the musculature and loss of
flexibility. Whether you’re a runner, walker, biker, swimmer, play hockey, or are constantly on
your feet or sitting as part of your career, Core/Yin fusion can help reduce the effect of repetitive
motion stress and nurture the development of flexibility in areas that tend to succumb to
tightness. Through time, this practice can help to lengthen muscles, open up the joint systems
and foster the improvement of core stabilization for healthy physical alignment, and mind/body
awareness in any activity.

Yin Yoga with Kristine Keegan
Nov 20 @ 5:20 pm – 6:20 pm
Yin Yoga with Kristine Keegan

Appropriate for all levels!  Extensive use of props and modifications makes this class accessible to everyone from the brand new beginner to an experienced yogi.

Begin or continue your exploration into the Yin-side of your body and mind in this weekly class.  Train yourself to become comfortable in stillness, a wonderful antidote to the 21st century life-on-the-go.  Simultaneously, unravel the layers of tension and restriction that have taken up residence in your fascia, tendons, and ligaments.

Each class will include all or most of these components:

  • Seated meditation and breathwork
  • Physical postures from the yin yoga tradition
  • Optional interludes of yang-style movement
  • One or more restorative postures to end the class

A sense of curiosity is the only pre-requisite for this class.  I hope you’ll join me and the growing number of people that have discovered increased freedom of movement and decreased pain as a result of a regular Yin Yoga practice.

Yin Yoga: Creating Space with Andrea Gleason
Nov 22 @ 9:00 am – 10:15 am
Yin Yoga: Creating Space with Andrea Gleason

Instructor: Andrea Gleason

Join Andrea for a gentle take it to the mat, Yin Yoga practice that may include some easy “non Yin” movement.   Slow down your pace and get into your body.  By holding poses in a relaxed state you’ll exercise the non-elastic tissues in your body.  In other words your joints, ligaments and fascia.  Using modifications and blocks for proper alignment and safety, you will gain a deeper sense of connection to your body.

Yin Yoga helps to:

  • Calm and balance to the mind and body.
  • Regulate energy in the body.
  • Increase mobility in the body, especially the joints and hips.
  • Lower stress levels (no one needs that)
  • Encourages greater stamina.
  • Enhances lubrication and protection of joints.

This class is appropriate for all levels.

Dec 8 ~ Surrender to Sound Healing with Yin & Music ~Nicole French & Helena Nash
Dec 8 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Dec 8 ~ Surrender to Sound Healing with Yin & Music ~Nicole French & Helena Nash @ Scarborough Yoga | Scarborough | Maine | United States

In the tradition of Yin Yoga, the holding of a pose for multiple minutes can be challenging, especially when the mind is restless. Add the beautiful vibration of a human voice, and this happens with much more ease. In this class, the vocal and instrumental tones created by Helena Nash will be woven through the Yin Yoga sequence led by Nicole French, with an intention of gentle healing for the physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. Poses will target the connective tissues that support the muscular and skeletal systems while attention is trained on the senses. Practicing the principles of yin yoga in combination with this amazing sound current will resonate with students of all levels!
