According to Stephanie Dixon, executive director of Summerlin Yoga, who is organizing the class, yin involves passive stretching and focusing on one's breath along with holding postures for four to five minutes. "Yin is a great class for all levels, from beginner to more advanced," she said.
Those interested should bring a mat and water. There is no set fee for the class but donations are welcome.
