Slow moving, more passive, deeper stretching. Yin is both gentle, and yet a challenging practice. Poses are held for 3 – 5 minutes. More time in each posture gives way to restoring the body towards a natural state of softening and letting go. All poses are seated or reclined and there is almost always the use of props such as blocks and straps. This class is all about ‘un-doing’ all of the ‘doing’ we do! Yin is also a great intro to meditation and a great way to practice the ability find stillness in body and mind.
This style of practice is suitable for all levels and a great way to help become accustomed to being in a heated room.
