Yin

So much so often a yoga practice is about striving, there’s that achieving attitude. Yin yoga can give us the space to slow down, a chance to stay with our experiences rather than always rushing. In a Yin yoga practice, all the postures are sitting – and all the postures are held for sustained periods of time (often five minutes). Within these long holds there is an encouragement of softness and an emphasis on relaxing muscular tissue. Through these attitudes there can be a gaining of harmony and peace: so there is a greater ease, a deeper sense of balance, feelings of calmness and acceptance.

A good pace with scope for variations to challenge yourself further if you wanted. The instructor sought people’s permission to adjust them at the beginning which I appreciated. This is easily one of the best yin classes in town.

João took the time to explain each move, provided easier/harder alternatives and adjusted my form to make sure I was protecting my back injury. It was a really enjoyable, refreshing class. I’ll definitely be back!
