HOT YIN YOGA
This 60-minute Yin Yoga class is a slow-paced style of yoga where yoga postures are held for deep stretching and relaxation. Yin Yoga’s primary function is to circulate chi (prana) across specific meridian points in our body to increase the optimal function of the organs. Yin Yoga also allows us to tap into our para sympathetic nervous system which can allow the brain to tap into a state of total relaxation, which is very healing for the system. Meridians are highly conductive energetic pathways. Different shapes (asanas) allow access to specific meridians which will be held for a minimum of 3 minutes per asana. These long holds are what makes a Yin practice unique from other styles and allows us to lubricate our fascia which is the connective tissue in the body that the meridians are traveling through. These classes use our standard heating method* and are paired with music. Beginner to advanced levels.

FLOWS FOR FIRST RESPONDERS
Burnout is a common term described as being “exhausted, listless and unable to cope” due to the “severe stress and high ideals experienced by people working in helping professions.” It is estimated that 30% of first responders develop burnout and behavior health conditions, including, but not limited to depression, anxiety, substance abuse, stress and post traumatic stress, 40% of first responders exhibit altered sleep patterns related to burnout, 125-300 police officers commit suicide each year. In the line of duty first responders are exposed to death, grief, injury, pain, loss, threats to personal safety, long hours of work, frequent shifts, longer shift hours, poor sleep and physical hardships. These exposures can lead to personal, familial, social and economic struggles.
Blue Moon Yoga is responding to the crisis of burnout and stress in this population by offering Trauma-Conscious Yoga for first responders and their families. Our primary goal is to provide a safe and secure environment with a strong emphasis on re-establishing the mind-body connection and guiding first responders to healthier and more peaceful lives. Through yoga, participants learn how to handle stressful situations in a more relaxed manner by quieting and focusing the mind, which encourages positive thoughts and self-acceptance. By promoting relaxation and lowering stress, participants demonstrate improvement in quality and length of sleep—increased physical strength, flexibility, balance and focus — enhanced self-confidence, self-worth, ease and equanimity in daily life— and a greater ability to cope and manage behavioral health symptoms thereby improving overall quality of life.
Trauma-conscious yoga cultivates a connection to the self and helps those affected regain a sense of control and ownership over their bodies and experiences. Yoga consists of the physical movement of the body paired with breath and affirmations. Trauma conscious yoga provides an opportunity to be physically in sync with others and fosters a strong sense of community.
