This class is half Yin and half restorative practice. Course will be held on Wednesdays at 17.30-19.00. Yin Yoga is slow, calming and more meditative practice of yoga that works on releasing myofascial tensions in the body. By releasing tension and tightness around the hips and lower back, all other body parts will start to open too. Therefore, making your feel strong and energetic yet nurtured. Healthy fascia is important for structure, integrity and energy flow. Fascia is a thin sheet of membrane that wraps around each layer of our tissues from the skin to the bones. Fascia can contract which causes tightness, tension and pain to different parts of the body. A passive practice that involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for 3 to 5 minutes, accessing deeper layers of fascia.
Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. During the long holds of restorative asanas your body gets much needed rest and deep relaxation. Within the help of yoga props, we create comfortable poses filled with stillness, ease and opening. Props are used extensively to support your body, so you can hold poses for longer periods of time. Postures are usually adapted from supine or seated yoga poses with the addition of blocks, bolsters, and blankets to eliminate unnecessary straining. No prior experience needed.
