Yanira Umana

Yoga to me signifies a safe space to connect with ourselves and with others. I began my yoga practice nearly ten years ago, but took me many years to decide to complete my training and start teaching yoga. I consider myself a forever yoga student and it’s certainly a gift to be able to share yoga with others. I want everyone that comes in my room to feel at ease and to feel empowered. My yoga room is everyone’s yoga room and it’s ultimately a place where we learn and practice abilities that help us through life, such stillness, opening, strength, and surrender.
 
Yanira is also hosting a yoga retreat to El Salvador this summer, August 16-22 - more info here: https://www.myterrayoga.com

Power Vinyasa

In this 60-minute yin yoga class, poses are held for 3-5 minutes in order to target connective tissue such as ligaments, tendons, bone, and fascia. As opposed to yang yoga – our power vinyasa and sculpt classes, which primarily work the muscle tissues. The yin practice begins where the yang practice ends – with a focus on stillness, surrender, and surfing the edge of comfort and discomfort. Both practices focus on breath, and bringing awareness into the body.You might be asking what style of yoga you need. The answer is both. At times when you have been still or inactive for long periods of time (i.e. sitting behind a desk at a computer) the benefits of a yang practice will be evident. And then when life has been a roller coaster and frantic, the benefits of yin become evident.
