What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is a slow, meditative practice which uses long holds and compression and release to target those tight, plastic tissues like ligaments, fascia, and joints. You will linger in poses a little longer, take your awareness a bit deeper, and learn to play with breath in new ways. Expect a relaxed vibe, where you will not get sweaty but you will need to wear clothes which enable you to get down on the floor.
Alison Herlihy Bio
Alison Herlihy has been an avid yoga practitioner since 1999, starting her practice at Yoga Yoga in Austin, Texas and using Baron Baptiste VHS tapes at home. In 2016, one of her instructors at the YMCA suggested she become a teacher, and she has been teaching ever since. She finished her 200 hour teacher training with Glow Yoga in 2018, and finished her 300 hours training with My Vinyasa Practice, becoming a 500 hour-Registered Yoga Teacher in 2020.
Alison is a family law attorney, and she knows first hand how important the practice of yoga on and off the mat is for managing emotional reactivity and the stress of daily life. Yoga has been a tremendous gift for her and she is passionate about sharing that gift with others. She is excited to bring a diverse, varied, accessible yoga practice to our little corner of the Gulf Coast.
