Yin yoga is a slow, deep practice of yoga that really allows our body to slow down, rejuvenate and release physically, mentally and emotionally - improving inner silence, awareness and reducing stress and anxiety.
The postures are passive, mainly on the floor, yet Yin is still challenging! Postures are held for a long period, often 3-5 minutes or more, applying moderate stress to the connective tissues working deep into the bones, tendons, fascia and ligaments.
The focus is mainly on hips (where we hold a lot of emotional tension), pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine as well as shoulders. We use props to ensure support and comfort allowing us to relax into the postures, increase circulation to our joints and improve the flow of qi (subtle energy) through our body.
The room is not heated.
Please bring 2 towels or a towel and a blanket to use for padding/support!
