Yin yoga is the oldest form of Yoga. It is a system of simple long held stretches without muscle tension that access the deeper tissues of the body called the fascia. These stretches, strengthen & stimulate the fascia to encourage flexibility & freedom of movement in your body while releasing deep tension & relaxing the nervous system. The outcome of which is a reduction of stress and an increase of regeneration in the body & mind. The connective tissue is like plastic in fibre so it requires time to open (explaining the need for long holds.) This is when Yin becomes fascinating as each minute goes by, we feel the body open naturally – breathing into the tension and then exhaling to find that we have more space. With each breath the body sinks a little deeper.
Yin works to gently stretch your ligaments, joints, bones and your deep fascia networks in the body, enhance the flow of chi in your organs too. These classes have specialised poses that enable you to hold them for long periods of time (up to 5 mins).
Slowing things down this term with a focus on long holds in poses to increase strength and flexibilty, targeting hip opening, wrist, upper body, core and leg strengthening.
Flow yoga is a style of physical yoga which combines fluid movement with holding poses for several breaths. A typical class begins with a warm up to get the spine and joints moving in all directions, then progresses to sun salutation variations and standing poses to build cardiovascular stamina and muscle strength. Balancing poses usually follow standing poses to improve stability and focus the mind. Class winds down with some poses on the floor to calm and open the body. Every class ends with a 5-8 minute relaxation/guided meditation. Breathing exercises or visualisations my be incorporated into the class to aid mental focus.
“Words fail to convey the total nature of yoga, it has to be experienced”.
