Yin to Go

This is a relaxed practice with all yin elements, but done in a way to gently energise you and lift your spirits. We stay shorter in the poses, and most of them are gently stimulating, so you can get rid of stagnation and move some chi without getting too sedated. I sometimes do this practice […]

Replenishing Yin

Moving the energies of the kidneys and the heart can deeply affect our overall inner state, especially when we feel tired and depleted somehow. Chest openers, hamstring stretches, shoulder stretches and twists, all deliciously yin to allow for a deeper rebound.

Qi cultivation

One of Paul and Suzee’s famous quotes is: “The purpose of yoga asana is to harmonize the flow of Qi/Chi in the body”. In this class that’s the whole purpose to activate the Qi, to lift it up, to move it around.

The Living Spine

So many of us have issues with their backs, so much so that we tend to think of the back as a fragile, dangerous place. There is also a tendency to treat the body as if it is inorganic, comparing it to a paper clip or a credit card. This short talk and practice is […]

Morning Express: Yin and Kapalabhati

This practice is especially nice for when you are recovering from tiredness or illness, or when your body needs something else than a workout. We start with some yin poses, not staying too long but enough to get the chi going, and then spend some time practicing kapalabhati, a strong breathing exercise that clears the sinuses […]

Yin It

This is not a full on yin session but one you can use to “yin” yourself out a bit; we don’t stay as long in the poses but enough to calm down, connect and relax. In just half an hour we get a delicious yin bath to balance things down when necessary.

Assisted Yin

This is a routine taught by our teachers Paul and Suzee Grilley designed to offer some of the yin benefits while working with a partner.

Meridian Boost: kidney and Urinary bladder

In this class we give the Kidney and Urinary bladder meridians a boost! It is nice to combine this class with the Heart and Small intestine class.

Yin Detox

This class focuses on long held and passive twists, which will increase the blood flow to the fascia surrounding and supporting the organs.
