- Balanced energy, 60-75 minutes
- Dynamic flow & longer-held yin-postures
- Yang activates the muscles
- Yin stimulates the connective tissue
A Yang-yin-class balances two main energy currents in the body. Yang-energy motivates outward oriented action and movement, ambition, moving forward, ‘getting things done’. Yin-energy motivates inner silence, receptiveness, observing and ‘allowing things to happen’. Yang-yin-classes start with a dynamic (yang-like) flow of sequenced movements and end with a sequence of longer-held yin-postures. In yang yoga we work physically mainly on the level of the muscles. Yin yoga targets the deeper connective tissues in the body. We end class with a relaxation posture (savasana).
