Easy Flow Yoga
A very calm yoga style, also called Hatha yoga. Characteristic is the soft and freer approach to the postures. Classes are more relaxing due to alternation of dynamic-static postures. This limits the load, which is nice for beginners. The focus is on continuous movement and soft 'flow'.
Yin Yoga is the counterpart of Power Yoga: instead of contracting muscles, you learn to relax muscles, so that you reach the deeper connective tissue. Because you remain in a position for a long time (2 - 5 minutes), the connective tissue is stretched. You also become more aware of thoughts, feelings, sensations and you work towards acceptance. Yin Yoga has a meditative and calming effect.
