Yin, Vinyasa and Menopause Yoga by Renata
Yin is a slow, inward practice that is deeply nourishing and often results in blissful feelings, stress reduction and improved immune function. The Yin tissues of your body (ligaments, tendons and fascia) need to be gently pulled and compressed to stay supple and allow a greater flow of chi, or life force. These tissues have a low fluid content and need time to respond, which is why we hold the poses for longer. In Yin you’re slowly and softly drawing the bones of your skeleton apart through long holds to offer your joints subtle space to rehydrate.
Renata is a firm believer in taking your yoga off the mat and into your everyday life. She believes in the transformational power of yoga and enjoys sharing principals of positive thinking and self love with her students. She encourages her students to approach their yoga practice free from judgement and comparison, allowing students to cultivate self-awareness while creating a space that’s comfortable for all levels. “Hold yourself to a standard of grace, not perfection.
