Laura would not have survived living in London for 12 years without yin yoga. Cities and modern lifestyles are active, vibrant with an abundance of yang energy. Yin Yoga is the opposite, a slow, yin paced style of yoga based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, bringing inner calm, focus and flexibility to help you tackle the fast paced, modern day.
Asanas (postures) are held for 3 to 5 minutes, longer periods of time than in other styles of yoga. The sequences of postures primarily held lying on the floor, stimulate the channels of the energetic body known as meridians in Chinese medicine. When Qi (energy) flows freely without impediment through these channels, health and well-being prevail.
Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress and stretch to the connective tissues of the body including thefascia, tendons and ligaments —with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. It is a more meditative approach to yoga, its goals are that of inner silence and peace, leaving you feeling deeply relaxed, yet re-energised.
"Thank you for the magical treatment! My head and my body feel so light and free!"
