yin yoga

Yin Yoga, Daoist yoga style is a slow-paced, meditative and kind of more active restorative practice than restorative practice is. Yogaposes are mostly floor based or seated that are held for a longer period of time (3-10 minutes). Instead of stretching or activating the muscles, we are aiming to relax into each pose and bring our awareness to our breath cycle and being. Longer time helps postures go deeper layers of fascia. Most of the poses target the dense connective tissues of the body - often in the hips, lower back and pelvis. Yin practice is suitable for anyone looking for a more mediative, stress-relief and relaxing class. Yin practice has been great way into healthier life as a whole, for me. And I wish that for everyone!
