Midweek Yin Yang Yoga

The practice of yin yang yoga helps us learn about stillness in movement and the flow in stillness. S. Powers

Welcome.

The Wednesday classes provide a chance for a check-in with yourself in the middle of the week, to clear out some mental fog and also generate some energy. The classes are designed to bring a lightness and freshness into your week. So that you leave feeling open, stretched, moved and centred.

Combining both Yin and Yang elements in one class can  provide a balanced practice and can have a powerful effect on our energy levels. 

We blend two different styles of Yoga into one.

Being soft and strong at the same time, seaking stillness in movement and movement in stillness. Learning to find the balance as one doesn´t exist without the other. Yin Yoga is a slower, more meditative practice where shapes are passively held for a longer time. This kind of approach stimulates the deep, less visible  (Yin) connective tissues and joints in the body. Yang Yoga refers to a more active, heat building practice. The focus are the (Yang) muscles and blood flow, building strength and flexibility. Yang styles of yoga are those with a certain rhythm and repetition, connecting breath with movement, like Vinyasa Flow.

A Yin Yang class can either start with yin postures to calm the mind and work on the joints and connective tissue before the muscles are warm or the class may start more dynamically and finish with some longer held shapes to relax and calm the nervous system. 

A slow, meditative flow to reign in an overactive mind. Learn to sync the breath with movement to bring you into a deep presence and calm. The classes are not about a destination or peak pose but more  about the moment to moment tasting whatever comes through.

Join me in October

To join the classes it is helpful if you bring a little experience. Which style you before doesn´t matter it just supports you to have some understanding and it is not your first time on the mat :)

The classes are held each Wednesday online via zoom.

If you have any questions feel free to reach out. I am happy to give you more information or help to clear any doubts or concerns.
