Our alternative after work class Friday-fun adapts a slower pace in 2020. In the end of January (24/1) and February (28/2) Miho teaches two sessions with the theme of yin yoga and meditation. The classes are an intro to a course in Yin Yoga starting on Wednesday evenings in March 2020.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced, calm style of yoga where you take time to explore the sensations in your own body. You stay in simple seated or lying postures for a long time (2-3 minutes to begin with), turn your attention inward and scan your own body to see if there is any tension, while trying to relax using your breath. Thus you can stimulate and stretch the connective tissues which keep all the muscles and organs together in the whole body, while at the same time you can cultivate tranquility and awareness. The important thing is not what the postures look like, but rather how you let your body be and to stay focused on inner sensations.
At the end of the class, we will do a partly guided meditation for 10 – 15 minutes.
Everybody is welcome regardless of experience! Come with an open mind and get new energy for the weekend.
The class is taught by Miho Hellén-Halme, yin yoga teacher and regular practitioner of Ashtanga yoga. Pre-registration is required and done via our partner Medborgarskolan Syd (click the link)
