Yin & Yang Yoga with Simon Low and Eija Tervonen
13th - 16th February 2013
About Yin & Yang Yoga
Yang Yoga is a skillfully balanced combination of circular & spiral movement patterns and the stimulation of energy centers, alongside essential alignment within a dynamic asana practice. This approach promotes safer & more fluid physical movement, and results in a practice that cultivates lasting strength & flexibility, inner & outer awareness, & immense energy. These practices are powerful, graceful, focused & fun.
Yin Yoga focuses on the feminine, lunar, passive, deep, restorative & meditative practices. A combination of postures inspired by Taoist & Restorative yoga, Yin Yoga uses long passive holds to work on the connective tissues of the physical anatomy and on the energy systems of the 'subtle anatomy' resulting in a profound balancing of your 'inner' strength and 'outer' flexibility. The perfect antidote to urban stress and a great balance to a more 'yang' style practice.
