Yin is a slow and more passive class designed to encourage flexibility in the hips and lower body. Postures are held for longer periods of time to target deep into the connective tissue. Students hold these poses between 2 and 10 minutes each, allowing ample time for deep-seated patterns of tension in the body to begin to release. Open to all levels and a great way to end your day.
Yin is a great class to calm down, stop and nurture your body, working on stored emotional tension through passive stretching. This restorative practise involves postures that deeply lengthen muscles and connective tissues encasing joints and all muscle, thereby helping to improve joint mobility and overall flexibility. In addition, the slow pace of Yin helps to calm the nervous system and provides students with an opportunity to slow down, rest, and revitalise.
Practise if you are feeling… like dialing everything down and giving your mind and body a big yoga hug.
