Yin & Yang Yoga with Ruud from 10 April 2018

Yin Yang Yoga blends two styles of yoga into one practice - bringing together the benefits of passively holding yoga poses with more dynamic sequences and standing postures.



“The practice of yin/yang yoga helps us learn about stillness in movement and the flow in stillness.” Sarah Powers

Combining both Yin and Yang elements in one class provides a balanced practice and can have a powerful effect on energy levels as mentioned previously. For example if you are low in energy starting with some Yin poses can be a good way to get on the mat and into your practice. Alternatively starting with Yang and finishing with Yin will leave you feeling calm and grounded so can be a good way to practice if you are doing yoga in the evening. By practicing Yin yoga first we can carry over this very mindful way of practicing in to our dynamic practice. This is really beneficial for those of us who might tend towards competitiveness or striving in asanas.
