Yin yoga

Time: 09.45-10.30; 14.30-15.15

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.

Good breathing also reduces stress hormones, stabilizes emotions, calms and provides better sleep.

NEW! Relax with copping

A restorative class where we put Curam's static massage cups in silicone on the body while you rest in various relaxing positions. A way to effectively release tension, increase flexibility, improve circulation and help the body to better balance with massage of the connective tissue that the silicone cups provide. Our network of connective tissue, also called fascia, is the body's largest organ, enclosing everything from muscles and bones, to organs and cells. The connective tissue has cellular memories and sends pain signals 7-10 times faster to the brain than our muscles, and should therefore be kept soft and elastic.
