Yin yoga involves a series of seated and supine postures, typically held for 3-5 minutes at a time. During these prolonged periods of stillness, the yogi experiences a surrendering sensory awakening that melts away residual tension and stress. Long Yin yoga holds are also known to release repressed or stored emotions, leaving the yogi feeling lighter, clearer and completely relaxed.
Yin yoga is an excellent practice for beginners. It gives them plenty of time to uncover the unique benefits of individual poses without worrying about tricky transitions. It’s also a tried and true technique for yogis of all levels to experience full body release. Those recovering from an injury or looking to lengthen versus strengthen will feel right at home in a Yin yoga class.
YogaWorks’ Yin yoga classes are all about the sweet serenity that comes from stillness. Similar to our Restorative yoga offerings, Yin yoga is excellent for beginners who want to spend some time exploring the fundamentals of each pose. Still, it produces the kinds of deep sensations that can be transformative for yogis of all levels.
YogaWorks Yin yoga instructors are expertly-trained to guide yogis through a well balanced Yin yoga class. With the use of verbal cues, props and hands-on assistance, our teachers make each Yin yoga class into a cathartic experience.
Yin Yoga 1 and 1-2 classes are an ideal offering for newer yogis who are still uncovering their practice. Instructors tailor the class to beginners with detailed cues and individual guidance.
