Weekly Yin Yoga Class

The Weekly Yin Yoga Class is facilitated by Anna Przybylo. Classes will take place on Thursdays, starting June 13 and running until August 1, from 8.00 pm to 9.15 pm. There is a drop-in fee of €20 per class. See booking details below.

Yin Yoga offers a space to slow down, nourish the nervous system and take a moment to pause amidst our busy lives.

This class involves holding poses for a longer period of time (3-10 minutes) in order to connect to the deep layers of the body, heart, and mind.

Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues in the body including the tendons, ligaments, fascia.

Yin Yoga helps to ease off deeply held tensions in the physical body, release stagnant or blocked energy as well as emotions.

Yin Yoga Benefits

This practice is an opportunity to reduce stress, restore balance, rediscover the art of slowing down and connect with yourself.

  • Calms and balances the mind and body
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Encourages deeper relaxation
  • Improves sleep
  • Stimulates the internal organs
  • Cultivates self-awareness
  • Helps us to connect our true self, our “atman” or the soul within.

What is Yin Yoga?

Yin Yoga focuses on passive (yin) postures which reduce muscle activity and stretch the connective tissues.

Yin invites you to settle into a pose, often supported by props such as cushions and bolsters. The Yin postures are similar to Hatha Yoga asanas, however they have been renamed to make a distinction. Paul Grilley, who developed this practice, did so for his students who were practising active forms of yoga such as Vinyasa.

The concept of Yin and Yang is rooted in the Taoist philosophy where yin and yang represent the opposite and complementary principles in nature. In Hatha Yoga, we talk about Ida (Yin) and Pingala (Yang) to describe the same principle.

Yin is stable, soft, passive, and cold. Associated with hidden aspect of things, moon, femininity, heavy and night.

Yang is changing, hard, active, hot. Associated with the revealing aspect of things, masculine, light and day.

​In our body, the relatively stiff connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) are considered yin, while the more mobile muscles and blood are considered yang.

In Yin Yoga we work on the yin tissues – the connective tissues, which respond best to a slow, steady load.The long holds in yin yoga stress the connective tissue and make the body respond by making it stronger and longer. Holding the poses for a long period reduces muscle activity and stretches the connective tissues.
