Yin

go to site Yin Yoga is a beautiful and mellow, meditative practise.   We are mainly floor based, lying on our mats using cushions and blocks to support the body whilst holding poses for a longer period of time.  We work on each side of the body in exactly the same way for anywhere between 2 to 8 minutes each time.

A consistent practise of Yin is one of the most healing paths I have come across as you are able to work very slowly in the body and see the direct impact of your mind’s workings on your own health, and I combine it with a regular Yang practise (any of Ashtanga, Mandala or Rocket) in order to keep a balance in my very active life.

Intention:

To gain the greatest possible feeling of ease and lightness in the body through working on the connective tissues and joints in the body.
