Class description

Yin yoga is a quiet, meditative practice where you slowly get into supine or seated postures that are typically held for 3-5 minutes with as little muscle activity as possible. This affects the connective tissue and the joints, increasing flexibility and dissolving blockages in the energy system of the body, the meridians. According to traditional Chinese medicine the life energy "Ch'i" flows in these meridians and if they are blocked imbalances will appear in the body.


In Yin yoga we work with the body at several levels: both the physical body and the energy body as well as with thoughts and feelings. You may feel more vulnerable during a Yin yoga practice but afterwards you often feel strengthened and well balanced.
 

The content in the Yin yoga classes will vary from one class to the other and also depending on who is teaching. We offer two Yin yoga classes per week - from week 17 you will find three classes in the schedule:

  • Anne teaches Tuesday at 19:00 in Strandgade.
    In these classes we mix Yin yoga, Restorative yoga, meditation, and other therapeutic practices in order to reach a deep state of sensuous and reflective connection between body and mind.
    Note that the first class will take place on 25 April.
  • Ann teaches Wednesday at 19:00 in Ryesgade.
    Ann's classes are founded in Restorative yoga that works to create balance in the nervous system and regenerate the whole body, as the body is allowed to reach deep rest both physically and mentally. The body is supported by bolsters, blocks, and blankets. Restorative yoga emphasizes calm, soft, inward listening, and over time you will probably experience more attentiveness and balance.
  • Lill teaches Saturday at 12:00 in Ryesgade.
    Classical Yin yoga with additional elements from Restorative yoga, mindfulness and breath awareness. A calm and attentive practice.

Yin yoga is a perfect complement to the more dynamic (yang) yoga styles like e.g. Astanga vinyasa yoga.
