What if I’m new to yoga and/or TCM?
The course is set up in such a way that all levels can join!
What if I have an injury?
Although the practices are very gentle by nature, if you have a severe injury we recommend that you check with your physician first before signing up. As it’s an online program, there will be no teacher in the same room as you are to give you personal cues. Please take this into consideration and always be mindful of your body and your limitations.
Can I join if I’m pregnant?
Yes, because of its calming effects yin yoga is also great to practice during pregnancy. Important is to know your limits and to make sure you don’t go deeper into a pose than before your pregnancy, because of the pregnancy hormone relaxin that makes your connective tissue softer. If you’re totally new to yin yoga (and you don’t know your ‘normal’ limits), we suggest to wait until after your pregnancy.
What if I feel pain during the practices?
In case you’re experiencing any sort of pain, please back off immediately. This could mean you’re overdoing it or you’re doing the exercise in the wrong way. Your body gives you a sign and you need to listen to it. When you try again, go less deep and/or support your body as much as needed.
What do I need?
You will need a few things:
- Yoga mat
- Blanket or towel
- A couple of pillows to support your body
- A laptop, tablet or phone
How long do I have access to this course?
You will have access at any time for the life of the course. The course and all included materials are accessible anytime and can be completed in your own time.
