Yin yoga is a smooth yoga, which promotes stillness and breathing observation. It is yoga where the posture adapts to the body and not the body to the posture. Yin yoga affects the meridians of internal organs and helps to unlock and balance the energy to these organs through acupressure.
It is a gentle and restorative yoga that stretches and stimulates the body’s connective tissue (fascias, ligaments, joints, tendons). It is a passive practice where the postures are maintained between 3 to 5 minutes with the muscles relaxed, since this tissue is not elastic and needs time to respond. It stimulates the flow of vital energy, calms the central nervous system and prepares for meditation.
To practice this type of yoga in private class you can order online a “Private yoga 1:1” lesson, tailored according to your preferences and needs.
