Yin Yoga is a practice where seated postures are held for several minutes. Deeply meditative and relaxing it gives us an opportunity to be still and really focus inwards. This brings a sense of harmony and peace.
Yin Yoga gives us the opportunity to stay with our experiences and really take notice of what’s going on rather than rushing and striving to get somewhere. We relax muscular tissue. We become aware of the fluctuations of the mind, emotions and breath. We learn to pay attentions to how things are without reacting. Mentally this practice can be challenging, physically you will meet areas of the body where you hold both physical and emotional tension. As you stay in these poses slowly this tightness starts to soften and dissolve. This can be incredibly powerful and nurturing.
Yin Yoga runs the 2nd and last Sunday of each month with Gerry, 6pm-7.15pm. Wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a blanket or warm layers for relaxation. Suitable for all levels.
