Yin Yoga is a static, moderate and functional floor based practice. We do not flow from pose to pose, but rather we linger in each pose for minutes at a time. We are not actively engaging and stretching our muscles, as we do in other forms of yoga, or sport. Instead, Yin Yoga targets the deeper “yin” tissues of our body, including our ligaments, joints, fascia and bones. Surprisingly, less than 50% of our flexibility comes from our muscles; it is the tension in our “yin” tissues that most restricts our flexibility. As such, it is a fantastic practice to help improve range of motion, reduce inflammation, promote healing in cases of injury, and ease out tension and tightness stored in the body.

Yin Yoga is a still practice. It is a counter to our dynamic lives, an opportunity to be quiet and spend dedicated time free from distractions. Holding postures allows us to withdraw our senses inwards and to notice whatever comes up: physical sensations, mental chatter or emotion. Each pose is an opportunity for a mini meditation.

It is important to note that although, by it’s very definition, Yin is a counter to Yang, it is not the same as Restorative Yoga. In our Yin practice, each pose has a specific target area and we intentionally stress the connective tissue of this chosen area. That being said, Yin is respectful: we are never looking to feel pain in a pose or to push past our edge. With an understanding of variable anatomy, my Yin classes are taught functionally, meaning I will help you find your version of the pose, one that works for your body. These classes are an opportunity to gently welcome space into our bodies, whilst working with our individual limitations as they present themselves.

Yin Yoga seeks to harmonise and create balance. Similar to our Seasonal practice, Yin Yoga works with the Chinese Medicine system and the understanding that good health is determined by the healthy flow of Qi through our meridians. As well as having a physical target area, then, each Yin pose also stimulates Qi flow by targeting specific meridians.

Whatever your motivation for attending a Yin class, you will be creating space, physically and mentally, moving stagnation and promoting healing and overall health.
