OUR METHOD FOR YIN IS 'LOW, SLOW, FLOW'
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time—for beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more. Yin poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, Yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
Slow stretches designed to open up the body to go deeper
Prepare for a magical yoga journey combining both Yin and Yang elements in one class, creating a balanced practice with powerful effect to improve your energy levels!
Learn to connect with energy as it moves through your body. You’ll begin with a series of soft deep stretches on the floor, then transition into a more dynamic series of standing postures to get the energy moving through the body. Later, back onto the floor, you’ll work on deep Yin stretches targeting areas below the navel, allowing the body to sink into gentle intensity in each pose to align energy channels. Warm, gentle and satisfying.
