There are many benefits to choosing yoga as a way of nourishing yourself and staying whole. YinYoga Napier offers four different yet complementary styles – Yin, Vinyasa, Yinyasa, and Hatha. You can find out more below. Our classes are taught by teachers with a deep knowledge of these yoga styles. They will guide and support you throughout each class and its series of asanas (postures).
Fluid, continuous and flowing with breath. The Vinyasa flow deepens and stokes your inner fire, strengthens the body and expands your inner self with knowing and clarity. Each teacher brings a depth of well lived yoga practice, and their own knowing to each class. The classes are suitable for all yogis. Please let your teacher know if you need modifications or help with specific postures.
This floor based flow that focuses on holding simple postures longer. Yin targets the deep connective tissue which binds bones/joints together as well as the inner body covering called the fascia. It strengthens joints, increases flexibility and joint mobility. Yin is an intentional, meditative and beautifully accessible form of asana practice for all yogi’s. Its purposeful practice settles the mind, relaxes and releases tension. A gratitude filled, sensory experience, a Yin class is like stepping into sanctuary, where all else falls away. The class is often backgrounded with music.
A combination of both Vinyasa and Yin, this is an invigorating, heart centred, fire-producing flow followed by calming Yin asana’s. Life right in your face? This class can dust you off and calm you down.
This 75-minute class is designed to give you a holistic and classical yoga experience, comprising asanas (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. We will work with both flowing and held postures while synchronizing the breath with the movement, not only to strengthen and tone the physical body but also to remove blockages within our energetic system and release mental tensions.
All levels are welcome.
