Yin Yoga - the power of slowing down

Yin Yoga is a slow paced method of yoga with asanas held for longer periods. This method of yoga really starts to work into the fascia and connective tissues of the body by effectively stressing the deep connective structures and allowing change and transformation to occur. It can be regarded as a balancing practice for the faster paced vinyasa methods of yoga that are currently so popular.

We are pleased to be able to offer some of the yin yoga practices in the retreats weeks; Yin / Yang Energetic Balance, (August 30 - September 5) and Refresh and Revitalise (September 20-26).

'Yin yoga has all the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana partion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues (which are called the yang tissues). Yin yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones and even the joints of the body that are not normally exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.

While initially this style of yoga can seem quite boring, passive or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere form one to tewnty minutes! Yin and Yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realise that you have been doing only half of the asana practice.'

Margaret, Cathy and Anna UK

'WOW! What an incredible place to spend a very happy and relaxing week. The food has been consistently amazing, the yurt was cosy and comfortable, the views and sunsets spectacular and the yoga classes in the morning were glorious. I had a truly wonderful time - as in, full of wonder. Thank you!'
Cherry London.

' thank you so much for an amazing gift that this holiday has been for me and Marit. Every meal has been a delight and a treat, as well as every yoga lesson. We'd love to come back one day and enjoy the views, the rest, the sleep and the yurts again. It is a little paradise on earth. I feel relaxed and happy. Hope to come back soon.'
