Yin & Yang Yoga
The Way gave birth to one.
One gave birth to two.
Two gave birth to three.
Three gave birth to all things.
All things carry yin and embrace yang.
They reach harmony by blending with the vital breath.
— Tao Te Ching, chapter 42
Yin and Yang represent the opposite qualities that we encounter in everything in life. Yin stands for softness and surrender. Yang is more about action and being focused.
During the class, Yin Yoga postures are combined with a more dynamic flow exercise from the yang yoga forms.
An ideal lesson for anyone who finds it difficult to choose between dynamic yoga styles or more quiet Yin Yoga. In this lesson you will experience the best of both worlds and you will soon notice the effect on body and mind!
In the Yin Yoga part you will experience gentle, quiet and meditative exercises that teach you to relax. We focus on the connective tissue that can stiffen and limit both movement and energy flow over time. Through Yin Yoga postures we apply stretch and / or compression, which can create space again and allow the energy to flow freely.
In the Yang part, the muscles of important and potentially vulnerable joints are activated. As a result, you develop strength, stability, coordination and flexibility.
You do not need any previous experience for the Yin & Yang Yoga classes. The class is suitable for beginners, but also for the more experienced student.
If you want to know more about the basics of the yang style, we recommend the lessons Ashtanga Mysore and Ashtanga Based Basic.
