Do you want to do yoga but feel that you could never get into those poses? If the answer is yes then this class is for you.

About this event

I have a stiff body and I have been to yoga classes where people have giggled because I've struggled to get into a pose. I felt embarrassed and stupid and I wanted the earth to open and swallow me up. Then I found Yin Yoga.

What is Yin Yoga?

Yin Yoga is a slower form of yoga where you take your body to where it is just feeling tension and hold it there. The gentleness of Yin Yoga allows the body to relax and encourages the energy flow around the meridians. Because the poses are held the use of props like cushions and blocks can be used to support the body to further allow it to relax. Whist the poses are held you concentrate on your breathing which switches on the rest and relax function in your body.

What are the benefits of Yin Yoga?

  • Calms and balances the mind and body
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Increases circulation
  • Improves flexibility
  • Releases fascia and improves joint mobility
