In September 2020, we launch this 8-week course in yin yoga and meditation on Tuesday evenings.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced, calm style of yoga where you take time to explore the sensations in your own body. It can be a good complement to other physical activities such as running and other more dynamic yoga styles and is great if you feel particularly stiff, or if you aspire to learn more about listening to your own body.
In yin yoga you stay in simple seated or lying postures for a long time (2-3 minutes to begin with, 5-10 minutes when you have more experience), turn your attention inward and scan your own body to see if there is any tension, while trying to relax using your breath. By doing this you stimulate and stretch the connective tissues which keep all the body’s muscles and organs together, while at the same time you learn to cultivate tranquility and awareness. The important thing is not how the postures look from outside, but rather how you feel inside.
At the end of each class, we do a semi-guided meditation for 10 – 15 minutes. All are welcome regardless of previous yoga experience!
The course runs on Tuesdays at 17:15 – 18:30, starting on 8 September for a total of 8 weeks. Registration and payment is done via our partner Medborgarskolan Syd (click on the link). Current members/card holders may attend the course using their membership (or klippkort) but you still need to pre-register with Medborgarskolan.
The course is taught by qualified yin yoga teacher Miho Hellén-Halme.
