Yin Yoga Immersion at Yin Yoga Napier
(English)

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

We will take you on a journey to “the other half” of yoga based on the teachings of their Yin Yoga teacher and mentor, Paul Grilley. 

Yin yoga is one of the calmest and most relaxing forms of yoga in the world, consisting of a series of passive poses of the body.

By means of long-held stretches (3–5 minutes) without muscle tension, we focus on the deep connective, fascial and ligamental tissues – stimulating, strengthening and stretching the tissues.

We mobilise the joints, and stimulate and calm the nervous system, thereby reducing stress and encouraging regeneration.

During the practice we temporarily slow down the flow of Chi energy, enabling the revitalising energy to accumulate and then flow more freely on conclusion of the practice.

Indeed for days after a yin yoga practice, we’ll feel blissfully relaxed and recharged.

All workshops are suitable for yoga teachers and also yoga students wishing to learn more about Yin Yoga.

Workshop I

We will reveal in a one-hour lecture, the unique therapeutic qualities and benefits of Yin Yoga and you will discover why Yin Yoga is considered to be a vital complementary practice for not only yoga teachers/practitioners and sports people but for anyone and everyone, especially those suffering from chronic back pain or stress related illnesses. Both yin and yang forms of exercise are necessary for wellbeing. They belong together intrinsically, creating harmony between body, mind and soul.
