Yin Yoga? What's all the fuss about?

Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues (which we are calling the yang tissues).

Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.

Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasise internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.

While initially this style of yoga can seem quite boring, passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes! Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realise that you have been doing only half of the asana practice.

Language: English

Best for: everyone who is looking to create a deeper more conscious, relaxing and nurturing practice.

Studio 191's Yin Yoga Sunday classes are set in pure candlelight followed by delicious yogi chai tea. Our floors are heated ahead of time so that you can truly relaxed and soften into your poses.​

We are very excited that 'Yin Yoga Sundays' have arrived at Studio 191!

The bliss begins this Sunday from 19:30 - 21:00.

This Sunday we will be practicing with a beautiful soul + an incredible teacher, Andreas Kuck...

Find out more about Andreas...

Andreas Kuck was born in 1978 in Hamburg, Germany. For more than 20 years, he was a professional modern Ballett dancer and teacher. After he decided to finish his active dance career in January 2016, Andreas discovered the practice of Yin Yoga and got so fascinated by this amazing challenge of combining body, mind and soul that he decided to follow the teachers' training program. At the direction of Johan Noorlos , Andreas successfully graduated in from his Yin Yoga training in September 2016. Ever since that time, he has been teaching to small groups and giving one to one sessions.

Andreas currently follows an advanced study in Mindfulness and Restorative Yoga under the direction of Alison Watson. Andreas' love for teaching turned to another level after reading the beautiful mails received from students after taking his class. As his focus is the discovery of the body, this is one of the biggest compliments that he could imagine receiving - when someone allows you into a safe environment to share and discover alongside them.

Andreas assists his students to turn inwards, reflect deeper and to look at the world in a different way. His way of teaching is both insightful and memorable. Bringing you bodily lightness through relaxation, a clear head through a mindful practice and an open heart from the warmth surrounding his directions - you will be in wonderful hands. Andreas' classes focus greatly on the breath ~ which is the universal connection between body and mind, but also stimulates the depth of each asana.
