November 26th – Yin Yoga Workshop

2-4pm

£20

2 Hour mindful, slow and deep practice

This workshop is suitable for all levels; time will be spent going over each posture to ensure that everyone get the most out of their practice

Yang Yoga (think Power, Vinyasa, hot Yoga, Ashtanga) Is great for exercising our Yang tissues, our muscles. Yin Yoga on the other hand allows us to work beyond the muscles, and carefully and safely exercising our Yin Tissues (our connective tissue, ligaments, tendons, bones, joints) The postures will all be done on the floor; we will hold the postures for between 1-3 mins

Although Yin is a simple practice this is not restorative yoga, we are gently and mindfully stressing our yin tissues. It can be very challenging to hold the postures for the length of time required, it will test you in a very different way than your yang practice.
