Q. What is Yin yoga?

Yin yoga is a stilling practice that cultivates a deep sense of awareness through the release of mind and body stresses. An antidote to urban life, Yin focuses on releasing the connective tissue of the body (tendons, ligaments and fascia). Poses are held for long periods, allowing the student to relax as they express patience and quiet.

Q. What can I expect in a Yin yoga class?

In this practice postures are held for a longer period time, whether that’s 3 or 5 minutes, and you will meet the intensity of a stretch to help you to foster a deep, pervading sense of calm. Staying in the poses for this extended time intensifies and deepens the stretch, which is supported by props to prevent overstretching, and creates a feeling of spaciousness in the body. Becoming still in a pose and staying with the stillness gives you the time and space to allow sensations and feelings to arise, which can help to balance and calm the mind. Yin yoga also helps you increase mobility and flexibility, as well as work deeply into the connective tissues of the body.

class levels

what do the class levels mean?

Classes are divided into styles of yoga, but also levels. Check with your teacher before moving up a level and always inform your teacher if you are pregnant or have any injuries.

open level

Open to all levels from beginners to more experienced. The teacher adapts the class according to the students.

level 1

Open to complete beginners, those in the initial stages of yoga practice or those seeking a gentler asana practice. You will learn the fundamentals of yoga.

level 1-2

Builds on the foundational blocks that are established in a Level 1 class. A working knowledge of yoga principles is expected.

level 2

Works on deeper physical and psychological level. Introduces more sophisticated practices that may include more challenging postures (inversions, deeper backbends) as well as pranayama, mudra and meditation. Not suitable for beginners.

level 2-3

Teaches more difficult postures and breathing techniques. Assumes an understanding of the gross as well as subtle aspects of practice.

level 3

A challenging class for the experienced student who possesses deep awareness on both a physical and mental level. Definitely not for the faint-hearted.
