Yin yoga

Time: 15.00-15.45

Yin yoga is a restorative and therapeutic yoga style that is about calming the body and mind. A counterweight to yang-based, more physical yoga. Yin yoga are positions with a light, soft stretch, performed in silence and with great presence. Each position is held for at least 3-5 minutes, which gives you time to unwind the mind and feel your body. Here we work with the body's fascia, connective tissue, more than the muscles. This is achieved by going far enough into the position and holding it for a long time. The focus is often on the hips and lumbar spine, areas rich in connective tissue and which, according to yoga philosophy, store both physical and emotional tensions. No pre-registration required. The activity is for private guests.
