Strengthen, stretch and totally relax!

 

 

Come and enjoy a full body workout, and be surprised how relaxed you can do this. Make sure you don't have to rush off after a session, for you will feel like coming out of a massage, even though you just worked the entire body. No joke!


In this practice, you will not only focus on strengthening the body, you will also benefit from deep stretches, stressing the muscles, connective tissues, ligaments and joints.(All the benefits you get in a Yin session, read here). Through the practice, you will be reminded to breath deep, keeping you present in the NOW, forwarding oxygen to all the organs and calming the mind, releasing any stored tension in the body, and triggering the parasympathetic nervous system- the Rest and Digest part of our nervous system’s balancing program. 


This is a set sequence, translated from the Vedas, specifically put together to restore the entire body and balance our Tridoshas (Vata, Pita ,Kapha). Hence the name "Tridosha Balancing Series". To keep it simple, we just call it YIN-YASA.

 

Possible side effects: Highly addictive ;)

 

 

Yin-Yasa is only a term to describe the practice. It's a mix of Yin qualities (mindfulness/moving meditation) and Vinyasa, a yang (strengthening) practice, which flows from one pose to the next, coordinating movement with breath.

But you'll actually be practicing a traditional Tantric Hatha. Unfortunately, the word Tantra has been misused & misunderstood in today's society and calling it Hatha also get's peoples expectations in the wrong direction. Therefore the term YIN-YASA. In the end of the day, it's just a name. Best to give it a try and see for yourself.
