Yin Yoga

Suitable for complete beginners or anyone with problems, especially sport injuries, in the body. Yin is a slow class with postures or asanas that are held for longer periods of time. Yin is mainly performed on the ground. Due to the gravity, the Yin poses bring some stress into the connective tissue – the tendons, the fascia and ligaments – with the aim of increasing the circulation in the joints and improving the flexibility. This also counnteracts very well to the aging process, where we tend to lose flexibility. Yin Asanas open up the Nadis/channels (energy lines) in the body and improves the health of the organs, strengthens the immunity and the emotional well-being. These classes, to which we will also add a number of meditations, pranayama (yogic breathing), and restorative practices, are perfect for people whose body is stiff (either sitting too much – or doing too much physical exercise). Whether you are a complete beginner or experienced Yogi, you will be physically and mentally relaxed afterwards. This class is taught in English and/or German.
