Yin Yoga is a very relaxed, very restorative type of yoga. We hold poses for around
5 minutes in a supported and relaxed way using bolsters, pillows, blankets and blocks.
Its extremely relaxing and mediative so helps us slow down. It works on the body
using the chinese meridian system so certain poses help certain areas of the body.
It's great for the mind, but also great for the body as it targets fascia and joint health
and helps improve flexibility. In this workshop i'll give an overview of the practice,
practice a number of the yin yoga poses and have a lovely long yoga nidra
(yogic or lucid sleep - a type of deep restorative relaxation/meditation).
A great way to end the weekend ready for the week ahead
4th October 2020 4-7.30 pm (gong with John Carter)
“The gong is an effective and powerful tool for healing, breaking all boundaries and perceived limitations. The gong’s vibration can be cleansing, detoxifying, relaxing, mind stopping, and utterly amazing. For an unforgettable experience, all you need to do is come along, immerse yourself in the relaxation whilst the gongs work their magic.”
These workshops are ideal for beginners or those wishing to go back to basics and go over the key fundamentals of the yoga practice including background, Asanas (postures) including sun salutations, the foundational yoga postures, pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. We will go through the rationale of safe and effective stretching and strengthening, alignment and modifications where appropriate and how the breath, body and mind all work together. BOOK HERE
