Candlelight Gentle Yoga @ Western Community Center YMCA
Dec 17 @ 6:15 pm – 7:15 pm

Imagine the soft glow of candles filling the room while you move fluidly through various poses. The long holds and gentle stretches help you to unwind and slow down and enjoy the holiday season. The peacefulness that you feel upon finishing a candlelight yoga class can last all night, assisting in a good night’s rest.

Candlelight yoga incorporates poses that are meant to relax you and release tension and fatigue that can build up throughout the day. Several styles are used such as yin yoga and restorative yoga, both of which include poses that promote circulation in tight areas such as the thighs and hips. The focused breathing and meditation techniques  also encourage the body and mind to wind down from the day.

If you are looking for a soothing exercise that can balance out your more intense yoga or workout routines, candlelight yoga is for you. Candles create a calming effect and help you focus during meditation. They are soothing to the soul and evoke a tranquil environment conducive to relaxation. The purpose of incorporating the candles into    candlelight yoga is to bring this peacefulness into the yoga studio so that you can release the tension of the days.
