Saturday, July 23rd, 2pm-4pm. Join Michael Stein, co-Director of YogAlive in New Paltz, for a workshop where students of all levels can experience the peaceful and restorative effects of Yin yoga, coupled with the dynamic, flowing elements of Yang styles of yoga. Yin Yoga is a meditative form of yoga that affects the connective tissue and joints more than the muscle tissue. Yang styles, such as Vinyasa & Iyengar Yoga, work to strengthen and stretch the large muscle groups that are more responsible for our posture and overall health. By bringing these two forms together we can  make huge strides in our physical and mental state in a very short time. Reservations are required as space is limited. Participants should meet at the Mohonk Preserve Spring Farm trailhead. The fee: $18 per person. REGISTER HERE. For information about private sessions with Michael please email: nyretreats@mindspring.com
