Yin Yoga with Samantha
Yin yoga uses supported, long, passive holds to work on the deep, dense connective tissues of the body – the fascia, tendons, ligaments and cartilage – which are difficult to energize and open. Using this combination of support, low stress and long holds allows the connective tissue time to transform at a cellular level. The connective tissue begins to flow very slowly along the line of stress and plastically deform. This gives us the opportunity to remould our postural patterning and bring health to these yin tissues.
This class is suitable for yogis of all levels of experience.
Almost all yoga practised today is dynamic and muscularly active, it is considered to be ‘yang’. Yin yoga balances this to bring harmony in our practice.
Yin Yoga Principals
There are three Tattvas (principals) to be observed in Samantha’s yin yoga classes:
- Come into the pose slowly finding your own edge, where there is sensation but not overwhelm (physically, emotionally or energetically).
- Become muscularly disengaged – support your body.
- Commit to holding the pose.
