There is no better way to relax and unwind in the end of the week than joining our Friday sunset class, releasing all physical and emotional stress, creating space in the body, calming down the nervous system and rebalancing the energy before stepping into the weekend! It is a combo of slow yoga poses held for longer, working deep in the muscles and more active poses working on blood flow, stamina and flexibility.
When these terms are applied in yoga, Yin Yoga is a slower practice where poses are passively held for longer. It works on the deep, dense (Yin) connective tissues and joints in the body. Yang Yoga, in contrast, refers to a more active practice. This works on the (Yang) muscles and blood flow, building strength, stamina and flexibility. Yang styles of yoga are those with rhythm and repetition like Vinyasa Flow.
Combining both Yin and Yang elements in one class provides a balanced practice and can have a powerful effect on energy levels.
