About this event

Yin yoga helps strengthen connective tissues (bones, tendons, ligaments and fascia) and improve flexibility. In addition, as we focus on what we are feeling in the body, yin yoga practice develops an introspective awareness of your body, helping you build a better connection with yourself.

Yin yoga prefers functional approach to the esthetic one. All bodies are unique and you know your body better than anyone else, so poses that work well for others may not work for you - and that’s totally fine! I will provide alternatives during the class, so you can find the postures which will stress appropriately the targeted areas in your body.

Yin yoga practice approach is threefold:

- edge (finding the appropriate amount of stress applied to the connective tissues to start feeling sensations of tension and/or compression of the connective tissues, according to the pose and intention)

- stillness (holding the pose to apply the appropriate amount of stress on the targeted connective tissues)

- time (holding the pose for longer time than in other styles of yoga)

Class structure:

- opening and intention setting

- yin yoga sequences targeting specific body parts (e.g. spine, hips, shoulders)

- breath work and meditation embedded in the sequence where appropriate

- resting in shavasana with guided meditation

- closing
