Yin yoga stretches and targets the muscles, the bones, the fascia and works all the deep connective tissues that make up the whole body. Using gentle adjustments and props we create the space for a deeper passive stretch. This increases circulation in the joints and improve flexibility.

It also works on the subtle energetic system increasing the flow Qi (or prana) bringing balance and vitality to the body and mind. It is extremely calming and nourishing, and can release long term stiffness and tension.

 

Restorative yoga helps to discover a physical and mental balance that can relieve stress, anxiety and other unhelpfull states.

Through the use of props and cusions we create a stability and comfort to relax deeply and let go.

The slow pace of this practice enables one to delve into the more meditative side of yoga and so find a deep peace and restorative healing.
