Yin Yoga at the Shanti Home
Yin yoga Brussels: this deeply relaxing class of long-held yin yoga poses takes place every Thursday evening at the beautiful Shanti Home. Newcomers are welcome at anytime & will easily be able to follow the class.
We use 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.
And even better, you get an incredible relaxation! Working deep tissues & giving yourself time, calms your nervous system & reduces stress levels.
Who can do Yin yoga?
Firstly, Yin yoga is subtle & deliberately slow, it is 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. In fact, two people can be doing the same pose & look completely different from the outside. Since both are working on the same body area & every body is different, it doesn’t matter how it looks.
In effect, this type of yoga is great for anyone who wants to completely relax. By getting into the deeper tissues of the body in these long, slow holds, you are giving your body & mind the time to let go, unwind & melt into a conscious state of bliss.
Overall, Yin yoga is a great complement to your other sports & activities because it stimulates healthy, hydrated joints & releases tension & knots.
The class is suitable for complete beginners to long-time Yinsters.
Where is it & what should I bring?
