Yin Yoga

Open to all levels

Yin Yoga is a powerful practice that targets tendons, ligaments and fascia within the body

Yin Yoga classes at Semperviva are taught by internationally acclaimed Master Yoga Teacher and best selling author, Bernie Clark and our trained faculty. Yin Yoga involves a relaxed practice of floor postures that are held from three to five minutes at a time. There are far fewer postures or asanas in Yin Yoga as are found in more active styles, with approximately three dozen postures in total. In a 90 minute Yin Yoga class, you can expect to do an average of thirteen poses. Our Yin Yoga classes are a perfect complement to a more yang or more active style of yoga such as Vinyasa Power Flow (Power Yoga) or Ashtanga.

The Benefits of Yin Yoga

A Semperviva Yin Yoga class is the perfect antidote to stress and a great counter balance to more active styles of yoga.

Each posture during a Yin yoga class is held for long periods of time to encourage the slow and safe opening of connective tissues, leaving the yogi with an overall feeling of lightness, spaciousness and peace.

Although Yin Yoga is a more passive practice it can be challenging due to the length of time postures are held.
