Service Description

Yin yoga is the perfect complement to our yang style of yoga practice. Yin yoga is a very passive approach to yoga and compliments perfectly our where you perform the majority of the poses seated on the floor or laying down. The poses are held for longer periods of time, sometimes 3 - 5 minutes. Yin yoga offers deeper access to the body targeting our connective tissues, fascia and ligaments with the aim of lubricating and protecting our joints. These are areas of the body often not reached with a typical yang style of yoga practice or fitness regime. The main difference is that yin yoga is very passive with poses being held for longer periods of time. Another important difference is that in yin yoga your muscles need to be relaxed as opposed to engaged, this is so you can work into the deeper layers of the body and move closer to the bone, an area often missed in a yang yoga practice. With a yang practice there is much emphasis on building heat and strength in the body whereas this is not the case in yin. Yin is practiced cold with no warm up and with more of a focus on flexibility and lubrication. Both yin and yang styles should be practiced to invite balance into your yoga regime. Level: All Running time: 60 minutes
