YOGA FOR PRACTITIONERS SEEKING TO BALANCE THEIR ACTIVE PRACTICE
Yin yoga is a great complement to any form of active (yang) yoga. Yin yoga works with deeper tissues of our ligaments, joints, fascia and bones. Typical class includes 10-12 passively held poses, these are usually floor poses. Yin poses have their active version which students know from hatha or other form of active yoga. The poses are held for 2-7 minutes. Being in the pose brings bitter sensation into body. Previous active yoga practice is important as the students must be able to understand the difference between discomfort caused by long hold of the pose and a possible pain which signals that the pose should not be held for longer or needs to be modified. Yin yoga works also with energetic bodies (meridians) and improves activity and well-being of internal organs.
The classes take place in Caveland in Karterados. If the weather permits we practice on outdoor terrace overlooking the local village and Aegean sea.
