Yin Yoga classes in Mangawhai

make time in your day * find space in your mind * nourish your body


Yin Yoga is a revolution in the way men and women practise yoga here in New Zealand and across the globe. Yin is a super-calm subtle body practice. Simple, mindful postures to bring balance into your day, by bringing space and mobility into your body.

In this frenetic, modern-day stressful life we lead, we are always striving to do more, to be more. Can you give yourself space, time and permission to do less? Can you do less and feel more? Allow time to absorb and digest ?

Create time and space by making time and space... 

Dedicate 75 minutes in your week to learn to slow down, listen, lean in and really pay attention to what is going on in your body-mind.  In Yin Yoga we explore the subtle body: joint spaces, connective tissue, meridian lines, chakras, autonomic systems and organic body.  There is no muscular effort required here, however some of your muscles may get a gentle wake up along the way.  Much of this practice is seated, on the floor, with props and the wall for support. 

Please note this is a slow and low style yoga class, lovingly designed to unwind your body and mind from the stresses of daily life, and bring more of the amazing blueprint of you into your conscious field. "Citta Vritti Nirodaha": Patanjali's sutra II - Yoga is calming the fluctuations of the mind, bringing the unconscious into the conscious.

class notes

Level 2:  for those with a general yoga practice of one year or more, or some experience of yin yoga.

Foundations: open to all bodies, no experience necessary. Modifications offered for injuries, hips, knees and shoulders etc.

General:  We continue our mindful explorations of the subtle and organic body, the myofascia and the connective tissues with both yin (long slow holds) and some slow repetitive movements. This is less abut how far you can go, more about can you stay with what you are feeling. Open to all levels of experience, including beginners.
