Description
Yin Yoga is opposite your Yang dynamic practice.

Yin practice is a slow paced, therapeutic style of yoga. Yin poses are more passive, floor based seated or lying down, targeting connective tissue like fascia, ligaments, joints and bones. Normally, we would hold between 3-5mins in each pose, giving you a space turn inwards and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of the body.

There are pathways of Qi - energy that run through our bodies. By stretching and deepening into poses, we are opening any blockages and help to restore the healthy flow of Qi in the body.

Mainly focusing on hips, lower back, pelvis.

This sort of yoga style benefits for all. Those who need to balance intense exercise, busy lifestyles, sitting at the desk all day. Also, for those dealing with injuries or chronic conditions.

Yin Yoga also offers wonderful emotional and mental health benefits.
