Mary first started practicing at Hot 8 Yoga for a challenging workout. It was not until she added Yin Yoga into her practice that she understood the need for balance. The balance and release Yin provided to her body actually added strength to her yang yoga practice as well as to her other athletic endeavors like marathon and triathlon training. She fundamentally believes that once you experience it in your body you will feel the strength that Yin Yoga makes space for. When shes not hanging around Hot 8 Yoga, she can be found at the theater, running, eating cupcakes and snuggling with her cat. She is a feminine feminist, could talk your ear off about environmental awareness, and spends her free time walking homeless dogs at NKLA.
Mary E instructs the following:
Hot Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues of the chest, shoulders, hips, pelvis, and lower spine, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness through long held postures with the use of props. Hot Yin Yoga compliments a more active (Yang) practice because it improves flexibility, ease and balance. Heated to 100 degrees.
