What is Yin Yoga?
Yin Yoga is one of the oldest forms of Hatha yoga that works to relax, release and stretch. Yin Yoga is a deep stretch, meditative yoga class that is slower paced with poses held for longer periods of time – typically 3-5 minutes per pose.
What are the benefits?
Yin yoga places a mild strain on connective tissue, that will stimulate not only flexibility in these areas, but promote fluid production, healing and reorganising of energy lines connecting myofascial layers with internal organs! You will also feel the benefits of a calm body and a calm mind. You’ll regulate the energy in your body and increase mobility, lower stress levels, increase flexibility and enter a state of deep relaxation.
What to expect my first class?
Expect to stretch deeply into postures. You will enter a deep state of relaxation and maybe even trigger some emotions and feelings as you progress further in the postures. You’ll feel as though you’ve been stretched and pulled, you’ll come out of class with a clear, calm mind and the urge to do more Yin Yoga!
