Yin Yoga followed by a cheeky G&T or coconut water. NO alcohol consumed during the yoga class. Pre booking essential!
Yin Yoga is a quieting, grounding, meditative practice designed to rejuvenate the body and still the mind. It is recommended to anyone wishing to slow down, deeply stretch and open up their body.
You will begin the practice with a breathing exercise (pranayama) and short meditation leading into a series of Yin style floor postures targeting the deeper connective tissues, held passively for several minutes at a time.
In our Western culture we often live in a very Yang-like state of being : full of stress, burn-out and depletion. During this class we will explore how to use yoga, meditation and your breath to calm your sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) and move into your parasympathetic (rest and digest) mode.
Yin Yoga is also the perfect complement to the more fast paced, muscle contracting and blood pumping Yang like styles of Yoga and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.
The postures will be simple and accessible to everyone, but this does not mean that the practice will be easy; there will be some challenging moments.
