Yin Yoga Special with Tennis Balls

With Jasmijn Koelink

Destress, Recover & Relax

In this workshop you’ll experience the effect of Yin related yoga on your body in a long session – using a tennis ball. This will give you some insights and techniques to help you to become more flexible and you’ll learn to release tension and pain. It can also free emotional energy stored in the body.

By using tennis balls, relaxing becomes much easier than one might think. Anyone can do it! Afterwards you’ll notice a smoother and more stable yoga practice. First we will relax and de-stress hips, buttocks, pelvis and parts of the legs, followed by softening the back and shoulders. This will also stimulate and massage the organs.

We’ll seal the workshop with a longer relaxing posture to allow the effect to sink in deeply in. We integrate and explore some breathing techniques, adding extra pleasure and relaxation to this form of yin yoga. After this workshop, you’ll be able to apply the technique of deep tissue relaxation (or deep tissue release) easily at home.

Experience the healing power generated by this practice and give yourself some time to experience the deep relaxation in your body. Afterwards you feel more energetic and your movements more supple. This workshop is open to everyone. Also for pregnant women, with some adjustments.

About the teacher

Jasmijn Koelink

Jasmijn, trained as a social- and organizational psychologist, discovered yoga in her mid-twenties and immediately loved it. A few years into her practice, she completed the Teacher Training at Yoga Moves and has been teaching ever since. She currently teaches vinyasa flow, yin yoga and the slow flow style that one of her teachers, Hilary Brown, developed. Jasmijn’s style is further inspired by teacher Max Strom – and his breath-focused approach to yoga. She regularly participates in workshops by different teachers to deepen her understanding of her own practice and the art of teaching.

Jasmijn strives to flavor her classes with kindness by emphasizing individual adjustments and offering different levels for different bodies. They are breath-oriented, intense, yet grounding at the same time. An active meditation student herself, she integrates a meditative style of teaching into her classes where there is more stillness in between -and in- postures, to allow more body awareness.
