RISE Is a great example of community development and efforts to build a resilient, trusted and accessible network of learning opportunity for rural Alberta. Bow Valley College would be pleased to continue utilizing the RISE Network to support and align with needs of rural learners, increase access to post-secondary opportunities and strengthen cross-generational learning through technology

Gentle Yin Yoga

Monday, June 20, 2016 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm
This style of yoga targets the deeper tissues of the body - bones, joints, connective tissues, and fascia. Postures are practiced mostly upon the floor and are held for longer periods of time than other styles. For those yogis that wonder why sitting in meditation is still difficult even though you practice other forms of yoga (often very muscularly based), this class helps to balance the opposing forces within the body. Hosted by the Irricana Library, suitable for ages 18+
 
Yin yoga is very supportive and gentle, and requires props! Thankfully, most people have these things around the house. Participants must bring to class: 2 firm pillows, 2 blankets, two bath towels, a couple thick books or yoga blocks, and a bathrobe tie or long belt.
