YIN YOGA & RESTORATIVE YOGA

 

With Sofie Swindlehurst

 

Friday 17th November  6:30pm – 8pm

 

Cost: £9 Drop-in

Yin is the calm, receptive opposite to dynamic yang.  Of course we need both but our swift-paced, uber fulfilled world tends to find life a little too heavy in yang!

 Yin yoga focuses on the fascia (connective) tissues of the body using longer-held, more supported asana.  The fascia extends around our muscles, bones and organs as a web which translates movement and communication throughout the body.  Yin yoga opens up tight, dense areas of fascia that can build up over time.  Balancing strength and flexibility in our tissues it offers benefit to those of us with relatively static jobs and slow-creep postural habits, those of us with specific sport goals and those of us who simply want to take better care of our joint health.

Yin wouldn’t be yoga without breathwork!  Along with the slower pace it brings a raft of benefits, re-setting the nervous system.  We’ve blended this class with restorative yoga (restorative being where the poses are entirely supported, without any muscular effort) for optimum relaxation and renewal.  Come revel in spacious stillness.

“Relaxation does not mean sleep. Relaxation means to be blissfully happy; it has no end. I call bliss absolute relaxation; sleep is a different matter. Sleep gives only mind and sense relaxation. Bliss relaxes the ātma, the inner self; that is why, in tantra, Yoga Nidra is the doorway to Samādhi.” (Swami Satyananda Saraswati, Yoga Nidra, pub. Bihar School of Yoga, 1976)

YIN & TONIC WORKSHOP

With Kate Kearns

 

Saturday 9th  December   2:30pm – 4:30pm

 

Cost:  £15 Early Bird / £20 on the day

 

Join Kate for a Yin Yoga and Relaxation Workshop, to unwind, release and let go. 

Mindful Yin Yoga is a permissive, nourishing, yielding & meditative practice. It works on the deep tissues that normally need a gentle, longer-held pressure to be stimulated and grow stronger. The asanas in this slow-paced style of yoga are held for 3 to 5 minutes, while keeping deep, mindful breathing. This helps to improve flexibility by releasing the connective tissues of the body including the tendons, fascia, and ligaments, even joints of the bones generally in the hips, pelvis and lower spine. At the same time, there is an emphasis on relaxing the muscular tissue. The tissue will lengthen, open-up and become stronger, restoring itself and increasing flexibility of the whole body.

Yin is a quiet and simple yoga practice but that does not mean that it is easy. Yin can be challenging owing to holding the postures for long periods. We can use props like blocks, bolsters, blankets and cushions help us to remain at our appropriate edge and support us in the pose

Yin Yoga is the perfect complement to dynamic (Yang) forms of yoga and aims to unblock energy channels known as the meridians and offers a deep release and sense of letting go. Cultivating harmony and peace, a deeper sense of balance and feelings of calmness. It taps in to our innate potential for healing and it cultivates our ability to embody wisdom and self-compassion and can help us to free whatever arises in our lives with integrity, with clarity and with an open-hearted presence.

Suitable for all levels including beginners.

(Cancellation policy – up to 48 hours before the event I can offer a space on another workshop. If I can get someone to take your place then I can offer a refund.  Within 48 hours of a workshop – I’m sorry but I cannot offer a refund as it’s too late to fill the place)
