Yin yoga is for everyone, the busy minded man or woman, those seeking deeper relaxation and even those who struggle to switch off. Yin yoga is a slow-paced and therapeutic style of yoga.
The practice of yin yoga gives you the opportunity to unwind, increase your body’s mobility, gather your strength and restore your energy levels. In each class you are guided through a handful of positions.
To support the body we often use props, such as cushions, blankets and rolled-up towels. We use what we have at home, no need to buy fancy equipment, unless you want to.

What is yin yoga?
Yin yoga is a quiet form of yoga that is suitable for most people and the postures are mainly performed in a seated or supine position. In contrast to more dynamic yoga styles, yin yoga works with gentle stretching of the connective tissue, joints and ligaments. As these tissues need time to soften, we stay in the positions for a long time – often between to 3-5 minutes. We also work on breathing, awareness and slowness which makes yin yoga a fantastic tool for releasing stress and tension and stilling the mind.
principles to remember
*FIND YOUR EDGE*
Find an appropriate edge, not too intense sensations, not too little. Always avoid pain.
*RESOLVE TO REMAIN STILL*
Invite stillness, try to soften into the pose, and to remain still. To overcome the urge to fidget, move, adjust can be incredibly challenging for both the body and mind, but the more you practice it, the easier it gets.
*HOLD FOR TIME*
Long holds, staying for minutes, not moments since your fascia needs more than a minute to respond. As you hold, focusing on your breath can be incredibly beneficial as sensation will often build in your muscles.
Come out of the pose gently and slowly. Pause and pay attention.

Feedback from online participants
“As someone who used to get an allergic reaction to words like “spirituality” and “zen”, Camilla has helped me tremendously in connecting my mind to my body. Struggling with stress and anxiety because of a burn out, my body felt like it was working against me. I had panic attacks and something as basic as breathing, no longer came easy. During my weekly Yin classes, Camilla helped me to listen to my body and my breath and to observe it without judgment. Teaching me to use my breath as a way to calm me down, instead of stressing me out. Some of her classes left me crying with relieved emotions, others laughing with joy. As her good sense of humor and on-point quotes usually narrate the classes.” -S.J
The Wednesday evening yin classes with Camilla are the highlight of my week. It’s so nice to re-connect with the group online and find out how everyone’s doing. Camilla is really attentive and accommodating and she’s always prepared to show alternative poses whenever we might need them. I love the themes she brings into her classes, making them so much more than a simple yin yoga session – it’s food for thought that usually stays with me throughout the week. And the recording is available between classes in case I want to repeat the session. -A.B
I love Camilla’s lessons! Camilla radiates tranquillity and teaches with a lot of knowledge and a good sense of humour. She pays a lot of attention to you, whether it’s an online class or in real life and makes sure she has an eye for your individual needs.
Camilla helps me get to know my body better and take better care of it. Whether it’s yoga, posture or breathing, Camilla’s classes challenge me to make progress in all areas. – R.S
