Yin Yoga

Stillness. Spaciousness. 

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.

This style of yoga works predominantly on the connective tissues of the body – the fascia, the tendons and the ligaments. Gentle stresses on these tissues can enhance the flexibility of our joints.

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.

breathe. smile. love.
