Yin Yoga

Long held poses to enhance your chi flow

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses or asanas that are held for longer periods of time, five minutes or longer per pose is typical. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues, the tendons, fascia, and ligaments, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. They are also designed to improve the flow of qi, the subtle energy said in Chinese medicine to run through the meridian pathways of the body. Yin is not intended as a complete practice in itself, but rather as a complement to more active forms of yoga and exercise.

Why is it good for me?

Improved qi flow is hypothesized to improve organ health, immunity, and emotional well-being. A more meditative approach to yoga, Yin aims at cultivating awareness of one's inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.

What will I do?

Long held floor based postures sometimes up to 8 minutes. Yin is the perfect partner to your training regime.

What should I bring?

All you need is comfortable workout clothes and something warm to wear during relaxation. Yoga mats are optional, we have them for you or you can of course bring your own.
