What is Yin yoga?
Yin yoga uses passive, longer-held poses to work deeply into the body. Targeting the deep tissue of the body, our connective tissues – ligaments, joints, tendons and the deep fascia networks of the body.
The reason it is called Taoist or Yin Yoga is because the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine is applied to it. That’s the same theory behind Acupuncture, Qigong, Tai Chi and more.
Yin yoga improves the energy flow within the body, enhancing the flow of Chi in the organs. This encourages us to have healthy, balanced organs as well as healthy muscles. There are also emotional and mental health benefits.
What Can You Expect?
Leon’s Yin yoga class will consist of a series of passive floor postures that you will hold for up to 5 minutes and sometimes longer with the use of breath and mindful connection.
Blocks and bolsters are used regularly to help relax in to the stretches, he will provide these in class.
At the end of the sessions there will be around 10mins of mindful meditation.
