Long, deep stretching helps cultivate a meditative mind. This deep yoga practice allows space for emotional cleansing and deep physical openings, particularly through the hips, pelvis, and spine. Yin yoga targets tendons, ligaments and fascia within the body. Each posture is held for long periods of time (3-5 mins) to encourage the slow and safe opening of connective tissues. Yin yoga focuses on breath, softness and surrender, allowing for a deep exploration of the body. You will leave feeling deeply relaxed and peaceful. Yin yoga is quite a challenging practice due to the length of time postures are held, but is open to all levels and is the perfect complement to more active, yang styles of yoga, such as Power Yoga or Ashtanga.
Please, wear comfortable clothes in which you can move, and bare feet.
