Yin Yoga Training

With Genevieve Munro

Friday September 27th – Monday September 30th, 2024, 9am-4pm


Yin Yoga approaches the body in a slow, deep and mindful way. Each pose is held for several minutes to liberate the body’s chronic holding patterns, and restore a sense of vitality and well-being.
