Yin is a slow, meditative form of Yoga where we hold the poses between 3-5 minutes.

In our modern world we have become externally oriented rather than internally oriented. This has caused a sense of disconnect from ourselves. Trying to live up to the demands of the world, feeling unsafe, pleasing other people, seeking for approval, not having boundaries… 

What we need most now is a sense of inner safety - a turning towards ourselves. 

In Yin Yoga we cultivate inner safety by getting to know ourselves on a deeper level - by connecting with the body, nurturing a smooth flow of energy through the body and learning to be with all emotions.

Yin works deeply on an energetic level with the meridians - our body’s energy pathways. Drawing from the knowledge of Yoga, traditional Chinese Medicine and Mindfulness techniques to release mental and physical tension. It a great way to anchor yourself. With a regular practise you will learn to manage challenging emotions,  have a regular practice of strengthening your body's system and removing energy blockages. I like to call it 'Inner hygiene' -  the pause during or after a busy week to reset.

Yoga helps you to:

▹ de-stress and release tension in the body and mind 

▹ learn to let go of the emotions and thought patterns that do not serve you

▹ increase flexibility and range of motion

▹ strengthen your energy system and increase your vitality

▹ prevent back- and neck pain

▹ cultivate inner peace 

Each of the classes is a step towards increasing openness, awareness and receptivity and hopefully enable the whole system to gradually experience a gentle, harmonising shift.

"I love how Sonja ties in information and knowledge about the yoga poses to our actual human habits, like where we store anger and fear. So valuable."

"Sonja really allows people to get into the postures and to understand their bodies more. After the two classes I really felt my body had been going through an amazing experience."

"Highlight of our Sunday! Especially in this time, it reliefs so much anxiety and stress inside us.Thank you for this ray of sunshine in our living room every Sunday morning."
