Yin & Restorative Yoga Wollongong
Yin Restorative Yoga targets the connective tissue including the ligaments, bones and joints of the body that may not be stretched very much in the more active styles of yoga. Because the Yin Yoga postures are held for longer, the passive nature of the asanas gives time for a deeper awareness, release of tightness while softening the body. Ideal for sports recovery sessions.
Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Restorative Yoga is a balancing complement to the more dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasise heating the body by working the muscles. Muscles are intended to be relaxed in these classes with the stretches being held for longer periods of time. The time spent in these postures is similar to time spent in meditation with a focus on mindfulness and acceptance of the body as it is. Restorative Yoga especially targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. Yin yoga classes slow you down and help become more resilient to stress. By slowing down the breathing and holding the postures longer yin primes you for a more meditative state of mind.
The Wellness Centre Wollongong’s Yin Restorative Yoga classes use a range of yoga props including bolsters, blocks, straps & pillows to help you into those long slow deep stretches. In a dimly lit room with candles the ambience adds to this amazing & popular class. Bookings essential to confirm your place
