Yin yoga can give us the space to slow down and stay with our experiences rather than always rushing and striving to achieve. Yin yoga is a practice in which seated postures are held for several minutes. Within these long holds there is an encouragement of softness and an emphasis on relaxing muscular tissue. Through this stillness, we can become aware of the various sensations within the body and the fluctuations of mind, emotions and breath. This brings a sense of harmony and peace; so there is a greater ease, a deeper sense of balance, feelings of calmness and acceptance.

The Yin practice invites us to explore inner landscapes with qualities of self-reflection and accepting – with equanimity. We learn to pay attention to what is, as it is with an attitude of kindness.  Life is precious and a practice such as this can give us space for appreciating the great privilege of being this body. Yin Yoga is beneficial and suitable for all levels of practitioner.
