Yin Yoga is a a deeply relaxing and restorative form of yoga. Its roots are based on traditional postures and asanas, however Yin Yoga is unlike your usual yoga class.
A quiet, gentle and meditative practice with music, incorporating long held floor poses helps to deeply stretch and nourish the joints and improve flexibility. This yoga class targets the fascia, ligaments and joints of the body whilst stimulating the energy meridians throughout the body.
The class has you stay in each of the floor-based postures for 3-5 minutes and weaves in mindfulness techniques to make this a deeply nourishing and meditative practice. The use of props also helps to support and relax you so you reach a deeper release.
