Yin yoga

Yin yoga is the counterpart of Asthanga and Vinyasa yoga. With Yin yoga everything happens slowly and calmly, with time for your body and you feeling ‘in the moment’. Most postures are in seated or lying position, and will be held for 3 to 5 minutes. This affects your tissue, the more rigid area of your muscles and tendons around your joints.

Barbara Falorni
followed the Yin yoga teacher training at Yagoy Amsterdam, after finishing her training in childrens yoga. She also works as an holistic masseuse.

Slow flow yoga

Slow flow yoga comes from the same family as Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, but is not as quick. It’s a soft and flowing yoga form, in which you will be taken from posture to another in a natural way. Because of the slow rythm, you will have more focus on feeling ‘in the moment’.
