Saturday 12th October

3pm to 5pm

Price: £22

This very special 2-hour workshop will introduce you to yin yoga poses or enhance your yin yoga practise, allowing you to go deeper physically, mentally and emotionally. All postures are seated or lying down on front or back and held between 4-6 minutes (some more or some less) with a focus on breath and meditation.

Unlike conventional yoga, we stress the connective tissues rather than stretch the muscle, which strengthens muscles and protects the joints. Yin is great if you have a hectic lifestyle and/or if you suffer from tight hamstrings, tight achilles, lower back and knee pain. 

In the workshop we will focus on:

 

  • Breathing techniques used in yin yoga practice

  • Chinese and Indian history

  • Anatomy and meridians

  • Nervous system and stress response

  • Samaskara (habitual thought patterns)

  • 10 yin yoga poses to relax body and mind and open joints

  • Meditation

  • Relaxation
