Yin + Restore Yoga

Sunday 6 February, 4.45 – 6pm

In studio and online with Gerry.

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. This class is suitable for all levels.

What to expect in our Yin Yoga class

  • A series of long held, floor based postures supported by yoga props for extra comfort and release.
  • 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.

What are the benefits of Yin Yoga

  • Perfect if you want to improve your flexibility and balance your very Yang active lifestyle.
  • 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 start to create change in the connective tissues of our body (which take a long time to change)
  • We become aware of the fluctuations of the mind, emotions and breath.
  • We learn to pay attentions to how things are without reacting.

  • Wear loose comfortable clothing and bring blankets and warm layers for relaxation.
  • If practicing at home it is useful to have yoga blocks/ books, cushions/ bolster.
  • This class is suitable for all levels
