A calm yoga style to create space and relaxation.

In a Yin Yoga class seated and lying down postures are held for 3-5 minutes. While the muscles are relaxed, the connective tissue in the body is stimulated by the specific poses. Yin Yoga combines the knowledge of Hatha Yoga with Chinese Medicine's meridians, Taoist philosophy and Buddhist meditation techniques. Yin Yoga has a positive effect on the organs, immune system, muscles and joints.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga combines aspects of Hatha Yoga, the concept of the meridians in Chinese medicine, Taoist philosophy and Buddhist meditation techniques. As a practice, yin yoga is designed to improve the flow of chi (the vital energy of the body) through the energetic channels (or meridians) to improve overall emotional well-being, immunity and organ health.

Mindfulness & Yin

Learn how to develop an unconditional friendship with your body and mind by practising mindfulness and awareness in your yoga and meditation practice. How can we use our life as a path of awakening? By relaxing the struggle for perfection and meeting ourselves and our world ‘as it is’. We all have natural wakefulness and inherent goodness that we can uncover.

Yin & Yang

When combined with a more active and physical sequence, the practice is then known as Yin Yang yoga. This class consists out of 50% calm poses and 50% active poses. Traditionally, yin and yang are thought of as complementary, not opposite. Thus, balancing the active and relaxing components of your practice can be a good way to create balance and harmony.

Yin Experienced

In this class, we aim to create an oasis of stillness. You will have the opportunity to enjoy a Yin Yoga practice with minimal use of music and words. The class will be guided with simple instructions for the poses, so you can dive deeper into your own practice, listening to what's going on inside of you without external distractions. Participating in the Yin Experienced class requires previous knowledge of the principal Yin Yoga postures - for those who have experience with Yin Yoga and would like to deepen their practice.
