Yin Yoga, in short:

'Eye of the Needle', against the wall. Typical Yin pose. Always looking for the variation which best suits your body. This is a deep glute stretch, you will feel it in your buttocks mostly. You can take as far as you want to. Try to stop fighting and do less for a change. Becoming fully aware of what is going on in your body.

  • Poses are held for 2-5 minutes
  • Poses stretch muscles & strengthen joints and fascia
  • We work with target areas. It is not about the exact alignment but more about the effect.
  • You are unique, so is your yoga.
  • Yin is a quiet yoga form. Leaving more room for mindfulness and meditation.
  • In Yin the rebound is just as important as the pose (or asana). The rebound takes several forms:
    • Physical (heat, cool, pressure, movement)
    • Chi = energy (calmness, quiet, peace, relaxation)
    • Emotional (tears, sadness, grief, relief)
    • Mental (memories, insight, acceptance)
