What is Yin & Restorative Yoga about?
Ease into stillness, intention and attention. At the heart of Yin Yoga is to surrender. To balance the strengthening, energizing "yang" side of a Vinyasa Flow or Ashtanga yoga, Yin focuses on poses that lengthen the muscles around the hips, pelvis and lower back. You relax into these postures for several minutes to stretch out the connective tissue that surrounds the joints and increase its elasticity. Then, recharge your energy and calm the mind with restorative poses that cultivate awareness and deepen our connection to our highest self.
What are the benefits of practicing Yin & Restorative Yoga?
- Relaxing nerve system and lower stress level
- Calm and balance the mind and body
- Regulates energy in the body
- Increase mobility in the body, especially the joints and hips
- Help to relieve pain caused by TMJ disorders and migraines
- When connective tissue is stretched with time, a warm, weak feeling may be experienced. It is the best time to retire from the day and let the self-healing process be.

About Heidy Renard
Heidy first started to practice yoga to keep her physical body healthy. It was in 2003 when SARS epidemic took place in Hong Kong. To this day, she can still recall how she felt at peace, balanced and her strength after the first yoga class – when the seed of her true calling to Yoga started to germinate.
She then found her deep connection with Ashtanga yoga – mesmerized by its strength, flexibility and the art of vinyasa – and embarked on the journey with yoga. In this journey, she has accumulated and developed the breadth and depth of her personal practice as well as her teaching approaches. She integrates the learnings and experiences gained from various of faculties, including pranayama, meditation, yoga adjustments, yoga philosophy and pre-natal and post-natal yoga.
To her, yoga is a lifestyle. It has accompanied her to navigate through different stages of her life. It gives her a great joy and gratitude to be able to spread her practice and to empower her students and clients to experience peace, balance and joy.
