In this class we practice dynamic yoga – or active yoga – where the muscular system is involved to perform postures – sometimes referred as Yang yoga. It involves standing postures as well as preparation for arm balances and inversions. The second part of the class is dedicated to the practice of Yin Yoga. In Yin Yoga we practice mainly sitting postures that targets the connective tissues of the hips, thighs and lower spinal area. These types of postures do not involve the muscles (as in traditional forms of yoga) but they act on the bone and joints areas of the body. Yin postures also act on the energy meridian of the body, refreshing and toning up the digestive, excretory, circulatory and respiratory systems.Yin Yoga focuses on releasing and letting go aiding physical, energetic, mental and emotional flexibility.
The terms “yin and yang” are borrowed from the Chinese philosophy where “yin and yang (also yin-yang or yin yang, 陰陽 yīnyáng “dark—bright”) describes how opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Many tangible dualities (such as light and dark, fire and water, expanding and contracting) are thought of as physical manifestations of the duality symbolized by yin and yang.” . This class is best suited for those with some (even if limited) experience with yoga.
