A hybrid of two of our most restorative practices at BLOK
Yin yoga draws from a Traditional Chinese Medicine and Eastern Philosophy framework. It is a slower paced style of yoga which aims to promote deep relaxation through a variety of seated poses held for 3 to 5 minutes, giving you a deeper level of stretching and opening. The focus on holding poses targets the connective tissues of the body; ligaments, tendons and fascia. The benefits of our Yin classes aim to enhance circulation, increase joint mobilisation, clear energetic blockages, and heal the body.
While you move through your yin yoga practice we use sound to stimulate the alpha and theta brainwave frequencies associated with meditative, clear and peaceful states of mind. This sound relaxation and recovery method uses a multitude of frequencies to sooth the mind and heal the body.
