YIN Yoga Classes


We like to say YIN is everyone’s best friend. A practice that offers tremendous space for rest and renewal. Yin encourages tissue resiliency, improves joint mobility and helps to reduce stress from daily life.


You will find yourself in stationery held poses during our 60min class. Poses can range from 3-7 minute holds meanwhile helping you to tap into the parasympathetic nervous system and create balance and ease. The act of carefully taking a posture and tending to your body’s unique set of needs for the duration of the hold is a form of self-care and meditation.

What are the benefits of YIN?

Yin offers a much deeper access to the body and mind. During each pose we work on positively manipulating the connective tissues. Connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady load, with the aim to make the body a little longer and stronger.

Yin is also good if you are feeling an imbalance in your energy. Really tired? Or if you have too much energy and you are overstimulated Yin is a great practice to cultivate balance and release physical and mental tension.

Is YIN right for me?

This is a class that absolutely everyone can benefit from. If you are looking to reduce stress or anxiety we work directly with the nervous system. Are you keen to gain more flexibility?

As one of the most popular classes in our Brookvale studio for stiff bodies in all age groups, we always encourage everyone to try it. Come and rest your body here.


Arrive to unwind. Collect your props that are needed for this class and set up your space whilst awaiting your teacher to guide you. This 60min class is an opportunity to deepen your meditation practice in a calm environment.


During the evening we keep the lights down low and practice by candlelight this helps to set you up for deep rest before bed. During the day we also provide optional eye silk pillows for you to use.
