Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is simple, but simple does not mean easy.”
Bernie Clark

So much of our life and even our yoga practice can be all about striving to be the best and go that little further. And sometimes we miss the opportunity to enjoy our journey and our practice. Yin yoga gives us the space and time to slow down, to experience stillness rather than just rushing. Yin yoga postures are usually sitting, lying or kneeling. The postures are held for a length of time – time to allow the body to relax and soften. The emphasis is on relaxing the muscular connective tissues- the fascia, tendons,  ligaments and cartilage using passively held postures to increase joint flexibility and muscle rehabilitation.

Yin yoga can be gentle and strong at the same time. It can be challenging to those used to a practicing a dynamic style of yoga but it is sometimes in the stillness of the pose that we find ease, balance and acceptance.

Yoga yoga sessions are suitable for all levels of fitness and flexibility. It complements other yoga styles and sports training.
