Yin Yoga consists of a series of floor exercises held for 3 to 5 minutes.
It stimulates connective tissue, ligaments and cartilage, important to allow maximal range of motion in the joints. This cannot be achieved in the more active yang yoga styles which strengthen and lengthen the muscles.
Yin yoga gives you the time to feel every aspect of your body. Being in the moment, in your body, in space and in your feeling. The effect of yin yoga postures is a more flexible, energetically stable and stronger body. It provides a perfect complement to the yang styles of yoga, stimulating meridians and organs and preparing the mind for meditation.
Deep release yin yoga
Do you suffer from tensions that keep coming back? Then the deep release yin yoga is for you. Everybody has some of those muscle knots – also called trigger points – that restrict your movements, cause pain. You can have them released by a massage therapist, but in the deep release yin yoga you give yourself a deep massage using a tennis or massage ball. By combining the roll & release technique with yin postures we work deeper on muscles and connective tissue (fascia). This makes you more flexible and gives you more symmetry in your body.
This class is suited for every level of practitioner.
