Yin yoga: deep stretching and relaxation

Yin is a form of yoga that works on stretching the body’s connective tissue (ligaments, bones and joints) in the pelvis, hips and spine.

Some people might think that the style is soft or even boring but what makes it challenging is the length of time over which the postures are held. In class, we hold postures for around five minutes and most are seated.

Yin encourages you to let go of any goals and ambition and just ‘be’ in the pose, finding stillness and deep relaxation.

Who’s it for?
Anyone can do yin. It can be particularly good for people who already do some form of sport. Perhaps you enjoy going to the gym or you run or cycle. You might already practice an energetic yoga such as Ashtanga, Power Yoga or Bikram. If this is you, yin can improve your flexibility and performance as you’ll feel more connected with your body – mentally and physically.
Yin allows you to find your limitations and helps you accept them, thus avoiding injuries in other activities.
