What is Yin Yoga?

Yin Yoga is a slow, deep practice that involves holding poses in quiet stillness for longish periods.  It aims to relax the muscles in order to gently tension and release the connective tissues of the body – the fascia, ligaments, joints and bones.  

It is an amazing practice that nourishes and lubricates the joints, softens and opens the physical body, and energises and removes blockages in the myofascial meridian network.

Yin Yoga is a natural complement to our more active, dynamic, strong and muscular yang-type practices. 

We will have new Yin Yoga classes on offer in Spring.
