Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body- the tendons, fascia and ligaments with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. It complements an already active lifestyle allowing you to stretch without exhausting yourself for future training sessions. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the daily stresses of life, Yin Yoga will allow you to switch off and just ‘be’. There are no planks, no warriors and no core work, no dynamic sun salutations. The whole class is practised by sitting or lying on the floor. The pace is slow so you need to wear comfortable, warm clothes. It is a class that is suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. If you want to calm the mind and stretch the body then this is the class for you.
