Yin and Yang yoga fuses two styles of yoga into one practice, bringing together the benefits of slower movements with more dynamic sequences to create harmony within the entire body.
“The practice of yin/yang yoga helps us learn about stillness in movement and the flow in stillness.” – Sarah Powers
The class starts with a Yin practice, holding poses passively for longer periods of time to work into the deep connective tissues of the body, leaving you feeling calm and grounded. It is then followed by a Yang practice, where more dynamic movements are introduced, working on the muscles, blood circulation, strength, stamina and flexibility, and leaving you feeling strong and energized, ready to tackle the day ahead. Through opening up these channels in our bodies, we allow our energy to flow to every part of our body – joints, muscles and organs.
For a balanced practice, we need both elements of Yin and Yang yoga. This class will leave you feeling refreshed, grounded, calm and energized.
