Yin Yoga

Level: 
Basic
Temperature: 
Non-heated class (room temperature)
Duration: 
1 hour 30 minutes

Very slow class which requires focusing inward. Asanas are held for 1, 2, 3 or 5 minutes, or  10, 20, 30 or 50 breaths. These poses are mainly sitting excercises and the main goal here is to restore the flexibility and full mobility of the hips, however there are some backbends as well.  This is a great complementary practice to yang types of yoga (hatha, ashtanga, vinyasa) so it is possible to take these classes right before or after them. There is no adjustment on the class, everyone progresses in their own pace, always within pain threshold. The class finishes with a 5-minute relaxation.
