YIN Yoga


This class is taught by:

Fletcher Boote

As both an accomplished visual artist and vocalist, Fletcher has always been drawn towards the creative and meditative practices of deep looking and listening. Her asana classes emphasize chanting/kirtan as a direct link to the divine sacred vibration that radiates from all of our hearts. She is committed to beginning every practice from a place of compassionate awareness, believing wholeheartedly that in doing so, the reverberations of our practice are all encompassing: at once personal, political, social, and spiritual; immediate and infinite.

Fletcher has a BA from Bard College and an MA from Chelsea College of Arts in London. She is a 300 hr Certified Jivamukti teacher who trained under the direct guidance of Sharon Gannon and David Life in 2007. She was certified in Thai Massage by the Vedic Conservatory in 2011. From 2009-2014 she was Director of Yoga and Wellness at the Vermont Studio Center Artist Residency in Johnson, Vermont.

Fletcher has studied with some of the most respected teachers in the world and had the privilege to teach yoga and chanting workshops across the US and abroad. She is deeply grateful for the blessings and generous guidance of her beloved teachers, Sharon Gannon and David Life, Lady Ruth Lauer-Manenti in New York; Rosenclaire in Italy; Dr. M.A. Jayashree, Ranjini Koushak, and Sharath Jois at the Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India.

Amy Jirsa

Amy’s first love is cultivating, educating, and cheering on those who wish to be ambassadors of change, of awareness, of yoga. Her interests lie in Ashtanga Yoga, Sanskrit, and Vedic philosophy. She’s a bookworm and an earthworm whose steady practice has kept her grounded since 2001. Amy is an ERYT-500, writer, photographer, wanderer, and inveterate lover of rainy days, mystery novels, early mornings, and a fierce yoga practice.
Yin yoga is the yoga of the subtle body--it aims to increase flexibility and improve circulation in and lubrication of the joints. As an important balancing element to your vinyasa (yang) practice, in this class you will experience asana practice as a different kind of challenge, holding static poses three to five minutes at a time to allow the muscles to release and the poses to reach into the fascia, tendons and ligaments. You will find your edge in a whole new way, releasing deeply to find your pose and then accept the challenge of going inward to find deep stillness in your physical body and mind as you hold the pose for an extended time, followed by gentle release. Yin yoga cultivates ch'i, or "life force" as the connective tissue we focus on is directly connected to the meridians (the channels in the body through which life force flows). This quiet practice and the awakening of ch'i offer many benefits to health including greater emotional well-being, organ health and improved immune system function. Yin yoga is especially good preparation for meditation and is suitable for all levels of practice. The studio will be comfortably warm but not hot (@70' degrees) to support the release of muscular tension and ease the body into deep shifts. Please wear layers to allow for changes in body temperature.
