A slow, quiet practice to induce mindfulness.
WHAT IS YIN YOGA?
Yin Yoga was developed in the 1990s by Paul Grilley, an American Yoga Teacher who blended the disciplines of Yoga, Martial Arts, Anatomy and Merdian Theory.
YIN YOGA CLASSES
Yin Yoga classes are slow paced and have a meditative quality to them. The poses are held for a long time, sometimes up to 10 minutes, and are all done either seated or lying down. The poses mainly target the hips and the lower back. This slow, meditative style leaves you feeling calm and centred.
In addition, specific meridians (energy channels) are worked on.
My own personal style of Yin Yoga interweaves Pranayama, Meditation, Philosophy and Stories, to while away the time during the long holds!
I have been honoured to work with both Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers, the main founders of the Yin style.
