What is Yin?
Yin is a wonderful way to calm the mind. Postures are held for longer(3 to 5 minutes) than in other forms of yoga, using the aid of blankets, blocks, bolsters and straps.
Why should I do it?
Yin helps to un-do the aches and pains of everyday life, sitting for long periods of time, driving etc.
It is a wonderful way to access a
more forging and mindful state of awareness.
OK, so, anything else?
As the awareness of mental health, stress and depression grows, more people are seeking out ways to combat these debilitating illnesses.
Many have turned to yoga.
Yin Yoga has an incredible uplifting yet grounding effect on the human spirit, holding the postures for longer creates a deep meditative state, each active stretch unwinds the stress and tension in the body, leaving you loose, relaxed and calm.
Will it complement my other exercise?
Each class is planned so the whole body is stretched and postures are well thought out to create a balance across the whole being.
Runners and cyclists especially claim that Yin is the perfect complementary practice to their exercise routine.
