Yin Yoga


This class is taught by:

Felicia Hilscher

Felicia fell in love with yoga in 2012 after she reached her breaking point battling pain from endometriosis. "I really started listening to my body during practices and was able to find a deep connection with my breath and movements. Now I listen to my pain, and instead of ignoring it and pushing it aside, I use it as my fire!" She loved classes that allowed her to create her own expressions and explore the practice further. This playful curiosity and respect for the practice itself brought her to Yoga Teacher Training under the instruction of Diana Vitantonio in Summer/Fall of 2016, in addition to guidance from a handful of yoga instructors in the Cleveland area (including many from Harmony Studios).
 
Felicia's classes are joyful, inspiring, and welcoming to all. She will guide you to finding your own breath and movements by using music and personal writings. In no time you will be calling your mat "home." See you there!

Juline McDaniel

Juline (CYT-200) discovered yoga through the encouragement of friends and was immediately addicted by the benefits and challenges of her practice. Deeply grateful for the wisdom her inspirational teachers have imparted, she seeks to help others thrive by nurturing body and mind with yoga.

Juline provides a genuine, non-judgmental environment while teaching various yoga styles. Her classes are strong, lighthearted and compassionate, believing that yoga is accessible to everyone and that regular practice can elicit profound changes in mind and body. She invites students to become aware of the power of the breath and to find their edge by being present to their thoughts and emotions.
This class is great for balancing out the more intense yang styles of yoga we often practice (i.e. Power and Vinyasa Yoga) designed to literally open the body up, creating strength, length and healing deep in the joints, ligaments, and tendons. Yin poses typically focus on hips, pelvis, lower spine and are held for longer times (3-5 minutes). This allows you to get beyond muscle, targeting connective tissues and the fascia that cover the body. Practicing Yin Yoga regularly will help to improve flexibility, stamina, and the body’s natural range of motion. Yin yoga is a simple, quiet practice, but – make no mistake – it is not always an easy or comfortable one. One of the leading teachers of Yin yoga, Bernie Clark, says: “Yin Yoga is not meant to be comfortable; it will take you well outside your comfort zone. Much of the benefit of the practice will come from staying in this zone of discomfort, despite the mind’s urgent pleas to leave.”

Suitable for all levels of yogis. Beginners welcome! / Balancing classes: Vinyasa – All Levels, Power Vinyasa, Hour of Power, Deep Stretch Vinyasa, Slow Burn, Sculpt, BUTI Sculpt, BUTI Yoga
