Yin – European Yoga & Wellness

Who can do Yin yoga?

 Yin yoga is subtle, deliberately slow & very accessible for all ages & abilities.  Really, we don’t care how the pose looks from the outside, only how it feels for you & the benefits you are enjoying.

This type of yoga is great for anyone who wants to completely relax while also working the deeper tissues of the body.

Yin yoga is a great complement to your other sports & activities because it stimulates healthy, hydrated joints & releases tension & knots.

The class is open to all levels & abilities; complete beginners are very welcome!

Mats, blocks & blankets are available but feel free to bring your own.

This is a hot yoga studio so although the room is not heated during the yin class it is warmer than other yin classes – please wear layers that you can take off if needed.

Who can do it?

Firstly, this class is intentionally led at a relaxed & slow pace ensuring it is accessible to everyone.  It is specifically sequenced for more mature bodies & there is time to learn about what you are feeling & ask questions.

Secondly, there is no such thing as being good at yoga; it’s not a performance & there are no perfect yoga poses, not in this kind of yoga.  There’s only comfort, relaxation & a focus on what you are feeling  as you work on what your body needs.

  Also, poses are individually varied & adapted to your unique body & ability so it doesn’t matter how flexible you already are.  If you work with what you’ve got you will still get all the benefits.

What is a class like?

Based on simple Yin Yoga poses, this is a soft & deeply relaxing sequence of poses that we do sitting & lying on the mat.  Therefore, there is no need to get up & down or balance on one leg; we also avoid poses on the knees so it’s ideal if you have issues with your knees.

We use bolsters & blankets to support your body in each long-held pose, making you very comfortable while you work on a particular area of the body.  In addition, we hold the pose for 2 – 5 minutes allowing the pose time to work its intense & vital magic on your body.

Furthermore, you are encouraged to listen to your body & enjoy what feels right for you because only you know how it feels.  We take the time to focus on feeling the changes in your body after each long-held pose.

What to wear & bring?

It’s a good idea to wear clothes that you are comfortable in & allow you to move.  Since you won’t be working up a sweat, you can bring layers to put on in case you feel cold; maybe a long-sleeved top & socks.  In Yin Yoga, when the body goes into regenerative mode, you may feel cold.

If you have your own mat you are welcome to bring it.   However, all the mats, blankets & yoga equipment you’ll need are available in the class; no need to bring anything but yourself.

Often, it is lovely to have an eye pillow or a scarf for over your eyes at the end of the class as you sink into Savasana.
