This class is taught by:

Cathy Snoddy

Cathy Snoddy is a native of Huntington, WV. She practiced yoga off and on for years before she felt like something was missing from her life and returned to yoga through the first Brown Dog Yoga RYT-200 Teacher Training program. She believes that laughter is important, even in her yoga practice and she loves to introduce the practice to people who think they can’t do yoga.  Most importantly, she strives to share the gift of yoga through it's power to help individuals tap into their inner beauty and light.  Cathy is a certified instructor in iRest Yoga Nidra and has a 300-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Certificate.

Yin yoga is yoga at its coolest, deepest and stillest moments.  Yin Yoga offers a much deeper access to the body and will open and release areas in need of more attention.  In this class, you will learn how to access the deeper tissues such as the connective tissue and fascia and many of the postures focus on areas that encompass a join (hips, sacrum, spine) improving flexibility while helping to release chronically held tension developed through overuse of those muscles.  This class will complement your Vinyasa Yoga, Cycling, or other athletic endeavors allowing you take your performance to the next level.
