Yin yoga is a perfect compliment to other styles of yoga and exercise. These other styles focus on lengthening and contracting muscles where Yin also does but its main focus is on the connective tissue. This practice promotes joint health (mobility and strength) and also your overall health and balance in your body.
While it may seem quite passive, a Yin yoga practice can be challenging due to the long duration of the poses.
In this beautiful, meditative, restful class, we give ourselves time and space be led by our own innate
body-intelligence. Each simple pose is held for around 5 minutes (softening muscles, and freeing
connective tissue), which allows us to notice the signals our body is sending out. Rather than ignore
them, or consider them as something to be “pushed through” or conquered, in Yin Yoga, we offer a
non-striving response to those messages. This is essential for the safe and compassionate care of our
physical and emotional health.
This beautiful relaxing candlelit yin class is suitable from complete beginners to advanced practitioners.
