Kaiut yoga targets the joints, the inflexibilities and chronic pains of our bodies to help the body return to the state that nature intended it to be in. Most of the work is done on the floor, allowing the inflexible to participate, as well as using props to access the body's restrictions. The poses are non-aggressive and peaceful, giving each student the ability to meet his/her body where it is at the present moment. Each class is self-contained, so students may come to any class and derive benefit.

Yin yoga is a passive, quiet, meditative style of yoga that opens connective tissue in the body. Poses are held anywhere from 90 seconds to 5 minutes to release the fascia system. The shape of the pose and gravity create traction that pressurizes the fascia allowing it to open, rehydrate, and release tension. Yin yoga balances the meridians, or energetic pathways, of the body creating harmony in the practitioner. Yin yoga uses three gateways to relaxation. It is not necessarily an easy practice, but the results are truly life changing.
