What it’s all about?
Yin yoga works deeply within the body to help return you to your current natural range of mobility and is the ideal antidote to a busy week. Using props to support our practice, we hold poses for up to 5 minutes, creating a greater ‘stress’ on the connective tissue and leading to a deeper release of tension and tightness. Ultimately this leads to improved flexibility and mobility, over time.
What’s the class like?
This class is slow! We begin class with guided pranayama (breathing practice) to prepare the mind and body for the yoga poses to follow. The breath remains a focus throughout the class, as within each posture we use it to gauge how we are experiencing the poses. This class takes place from a mostly seated or reclining position, and we make use of a variety of props, which are all available. Finally, the class ends with a seasonal yoga nidra to encourage deep relaxation and offer you the chance to switch off completely.
What level is the class aimed at?
This class is suitable for complete beginners. Everyone is encouraged to work at their own level and within their own comfort zones.
How much does this class cost?
The 5-week block costs £30, drop-in rate of £7.50 per class.
