Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga, with postures that are held for long periods (1-5 minutes). Yin stresses connective tissues (tendons, fascia and ligaments) with the goal of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Meditation and mindfulness are key components of this practice. Restorative yoga is similar to Yin. The use of props (blankets, bolsters, blocks, straps) make restorative yoga an even more restful than Yin. Both practices are perfect for helping you release stress, find stillness and spend some quiet time with yourself. It’s all about balance. Black and white. Hot and cold. Yin balances out your active Yang classes.
Yoga is on the rise. In 2012, 20.4m US adults practiced yoga. In 2016 that number had jumped to 36.7m. Yoga has left the realm of lentil eating ‘alternatives’ and soundly positioned itself as mainstream. For good reason. The benefits of this ancient practice are many. Google “benefits of yoga” and immerse yourself in the +16 million hits. No matter what your current level of fitness or flexibility*, you can take up yoga and begin your journey.
Therapy rollers (trigger point rollers, foam rollers) are used for self massage. They help soothe tight, sore areas of musculature and connective tissue. This process of rolling out tight muscles and relieving tension is known as self myofascial release (SMR). Sometimes known as “poor man’s massage” because it’s what massage therapists have been doing for years. Rolling out your fascia (a layer of fibrous connective tissue that surrounds all your muscles) will result in increased blood flow, lubricated healthy fascia, increased muscular range of motion and a release of sore tight spots.

The most popular method of buying class packs is to create your own small, exclusive, group! It’s cheaper, you motivate each other and you have more fun. Your small group could be just you and your partner for some de-stressing candlelit yin. Or round up some people from work, the extended family, whomever you enjoy being around.
Yoga is now mainstream; it’s health benefits are widely accepted. However, not everyone is into yoga for yoga’s sake, nor striving to do visually impressive arm balances. Some are simply looking to regain lost strength and mobility and feel at ease in their bodies. Private and semi-private yoga can focus on your particular goals, be it perfect your Eka Pada Koundinyasana or improve your golf swing, in a way that large group sessions cannot. Perhaps some of these goals resonate:
- manage stress levels
- add balance to a busy life
- alleviate back pain
- sleep better
- regain functional flexibility (not palm your hands on the floor, more like look over your shoulder to change lanes)
- have energy to play with the kids/walk the dog
- boost your balance (navigate stairs without needing a handrail)
- struggle less with routine movement (get up off the sofa without it being a workout)
- recover from an injury
- feel ease in your body
- establish some elusive life balance (a life out of balance can feel like one long, overwhelming struggle)
