Yin at European Yoga & Wellness Merode
Yin yoga at Merode – European Yoga & Wellness, every Monday evening! The class is open to newcomers at any time.
Firstly, Yin yoga uses the weight of the body in long-held, static stretching to compress & open up the body. Since the soft tissues get stimulated over a longer period of time, they release any contractions & tension. This allows your body to open up & improves your range of motion. Long, moderate stresses & stretches will do more for your flexibility than short, strong stretches.
In Yin yoga , we don’t care how the pose looks, it’s only ever about how it feels for you & you getting the benefits from the pose. There’s no such thing a perfect pose so you don’t need to be “good” at yoga.
Less is definitely more in Yin yoga. Your challenge is to see how much you can let go & completely relax your body while still feeling the mild to moderately intense stimulation of each area of the body that we target.
European Yoga & Wellness has yoga mats available for rent but feel free to bring your own; all the props we need for the class are available at the studio. This is a hot yoga studio & although the heat is not on during this class the room is still quite warm – hot yin it is 🙂
