About the event

It's that time of year just after the clocks have gone back and before the busy tinsel covered holiday season kicks off. A perfect for introducing some delicious, nurturing Yin Yoga into your life.

---What is Yin Yoga?---

Yin Yoga is a style of yoga where we hold floor based poses for around 3-5 minutes. It is a slower paced, calming and more meditative style of practice.

The benefits of Yin Yoga are threefold: PHYSICAL, ENERGETIC and MENTAL. Each week we will explore how a Yin Yoga can benefit us on these different layers. 

Week One | Physical

We explore how Yin Yoga improves the health of the 'Yin' tissues of our body, our connective tissues (bones, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and fascia) Holding yin poses when the muscles are cold puts a healthy “stress” on these connective tissues as well as improving flexibility and range of motion in in the body.

Week 2 | Energetic 

As we explore the energetic benefits of Yin we look at the Traditional Chinese Medicine system of meridians (energy channels). You might think of this system as a network of telephone cables or electricity wires which send messages throughout our body. Yin helps to unblock this system. 

Week 3 | Mental 

The mental benefits of our Yin practice is explored through slowing down, finding stillness and bringing mindful awareness to our experience in each moment letting go of judgement as best we can. 

Each week will also include pranayama (breath practices) and meditation and of course relaxation pose at the end - Savasana :) 

Any cancellations within a week before the course will be non-refundable.
