Yin Yoga Course - Gateway to meditation
Yoga in the modern world has been dominated by dynamic Yang styles. While Yang Yoga develops muscular strength and stamina, Yin Yoga complements it by relaxing deep connective tissues of the body. A more meditative approach to Yoga, Yin aims at cultivating awareness of one’s inner silence and bringing to light a universal interconnecting quality. Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga where poses are typically held for 5 minutes or more. Longer static holds enable access to fascia and connective tissue enabling increased flexibility in the body. It activates the parasympathetic nervous system & has a grounding, calming and revitalising quality. A regular Yin practice creates profound energetic and emotional shifts in the body and the mind. Great practice for many of us desk-bound workers!
Join us for a practice that guides the body into the parasympathetic nervous system, allowing rejuvenation and deep healing to take place. Leave the class feeling grounded, calmed and revitalised, lessening the mind-chatter and stressfulness of everyday life.
Each course lasts for 10 sessions, held weekly on Thursday evenings (7.30 pm to 8.45 pm).
All will be hybrid sessions.
Minimum 20 participants to start the class.
Bring your own yoga mat and come in loose comfy clothes.

HAPPY stands for Healthy Ageing Promotion Programme for YOU! The programme, designed in Nagoya, Japan, was developed to help that region cope with an increase in the number of seniors dealing with mental health problems ranging from depression to dementia/Alzheimer’s.
Dual-task exercises are activities where the individual performs a physical and a mental task. An example would be stepping on the spot and counting out loud. This stimulates the parts of the brain responsible for the physical movement coordination and the cognitive functions. Evidence has shown that a dual-task exercise, such as the HAPPY programme, has a more beneficial effect than a single-task exercise.
Though targeted at people above 50 years of age, everyone can participate and benefit from the programme.
Sessions starts from 10.30am to 12.00pm.
Conducted at BF West Centre 2 Telok Blangah Street 31 #02-00 Yeo's Building
