What is Yin?

A type of yoga that is based Chinese Medicine Theory and Taost Principle (as opposed to the Ancient Indian System of health that Hatha Yoga like Bikram, Ashtanga, Vinyasa forms of yoga). There is a continuum of yoga that stretches from Yang to Yin. Very yang yoga would be Bikram and maybe Power Yoga which are hot and very dynamic and then at the other end of the continuum would be Restorative and Yin Yoga which are cool and slow with very different focuses.

What is a master class?

Our classes are usually 75 minutes long (Wednesday 4pm & Sunday 6pm) in a Masterclass we can go for 2-21/2 hours and there is a specific theme. A Yin class feels like it goes very quickly so that extra time allows for more postures and for longer time holds. You will have lots of props to use, get hands on adjustments and have all of your senses fulfilled. Smells, sounds, tastes are all in theme of the class. And finally you will get some of the Yin Theory too!
