Background Information

Ipek is a long time yoga enthusiast and a 200 YTT Certified Yoga instructor who specializes in restorative yoga practices such as Yin and Somatic Yoga Therapy. She also practices on sound healing sessions which she sees as a great way of aligning the body and the soul. 

What is Yin Yoga? 
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga. It is a passive and restorative form of practice that works on our “yin” tissues which are our tendons, fascia and ligaments. In yin yoga we hold poses at least for 3 minutes, and our main aim is to improve circulation in joints hence our flexibility. This is mainly what yin does physically but it's much more than that… Yang is all about changing the world whereas in yin we accept the world as it is. Neither is wrong or right but both are necessary. In Yin, we learn to listen to our body and accept its limits where we find comfort in our discomfort. When and if the body opens and invites us for a deeper practice then we accept the invitation and move forward. In our daily lives we all live in a flight mode, yin yoga helps us to rest, digest and repair from this mode. In a 60-minute class, I will guide you through breathing, meditation and yin yoga poses throughout which we will calm and balance our minds and bodies. We will set our intentions for the day and release the tensions, which no longer serve us. Just take this time for yourself and let your body rest. 

What is Somatic Yoga Therapy? 
Somatic Yoga Therapy Class is designed to blend the mind and body interaction in a discipline of movement re-education. • Our main theme is always compassion both for body and mind, so we always start with small and slow movements, search for our limits and accept them with compassion • Most of our joint issues are a result of how we use our body; so in this class we recognize our movement habits and search for ways to create new ones • We work with small muscle groups rather than the big ones • We encourage “brain exercises” that creates a new language between between our brain and muscles.

I have taken both Yin Yoga and Somatic Yoga Therapy Classes from Ipek. Her soft voice brings out a strong sense of calmness and inner peace as soon as the session starts. She has a thorough knowhow of body movement and muscles and guides you gently to correct and improve your technique. Highly recommended to anyone who needs that pause and tranquility.
