Yin Yoga supports and strengthens the Yin aspects of the body (connective tissue, ligaments and tendons) as well as enhancing and aligning the more subtle aspects of the body’s energy as it relates to Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Meridian system. The practice of Yin Yoga also “exercises” our mindful awareness muscle, increasing our capacity to be calm and present in the moment. Gain more ease and freedom in daily movement as result of this quiet, mediative practice.
About Your Teacher:
Alice Riccardi has been a student of yoga for 21 years and a teacher for 19. She is a 500 hour certified Baptiste Power Yoga teacher and an established E-RYT through Yoga Alliance.
Alice came to the practice of yoga at the ripe age of 42, one year after her daughter Sophia was born. Wanting to get her pre-pregnancy body “back”, she turned to many forms of exercise to no avail. She would pass the Baptiste Studio in Cambridge, MA every day on the way to the gym but resisted going in. Little did she know it was this very resistance that would eventually lead her to her first class where she realized she had found a home in yoga.
Alice’s teaching style is inclusive, strong and compassionate. She believes in the power of the practice as a path to transformation, not just for anyone, but for everyone.
