Yin yoga comes from the Taoist tradition and focuses on passive, seated postures that target the connective tissues in the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Poses are held for anywhere between one and five minutes.
This class contains a series of postures that flow naturally from one to the next. Focus is placed on movement, alignment, flexibility, strength and integration with breath. Poses are held for shorter duration than in a Hatha Yoga or Hatha Flow class.
Prenatal yoga focuses on poses for pregnant women, in order to increase strength and flexibility and develop proper breathing and relaxation techniques in preparation for labour.
