Yin & Restorative Yoga Wollongong
Yin Yoga is a relaxing, passive form of yoga.
You don't need any yoga experience and you don't need to be flexible. It is accessible for everyone*(see below) who wants to relax, stretch and calm the mind.
These classes use special props such as bolsters, blocks & blankets to make the yoga poses relaxing and passive, enabling you to stay in the pose for up to 5 minutes. It sounds like a lot but holding the poses, passively, for a longer period of time allows for a deeper stretch and a very calm bodymind.
No downward dogs, headstands, demanding or difficult postures in these sessions. In yin poses, students are encouraged to find for a mild, safe & deep stretch. This is sometimes referred to as "Goldilocks yoga" i.e. not too much, not too little, just right.

How does it work?
Yin yoga targets the connective tissue, or fascia, that surrounds the joint capsules and in fact every cell of the body. In these classes we work particularly with the ligaments, bones and joints of the body - with an emphasis on hips, hamstrings, shoulders and spine. These tissues are very tough and can get hard and dry over time. Good news is that with gentle but continual pressure they slowly become pliable and fluidic again enabling free, subtle joints.
- Calm the bodymind and help you sleep better
- Helps with back and shoulder pain
- Helps to open the joints and relieve chronic tightness
- Great for recovering and recuperation
- Balances and complements a dynamic (yang) style of yoga such as Vinyasa Flow.
- It is meditative
- More benefits!!!!!!
