Make space and time for yourself with the practice of Yin Yoga: wherein you will be encouraged to explore and receive stillness in longer held, mat-based postures.

The workshop will be divided into two sessions and the latter, slightly longer session will be an introduction to Yin and Restorative poses which will lead into a guided meditation and deep rest. The workshop will include a 30-minute break, with the option to join your fellow participants for refreshments or light food. Following which, we begin the serious the business of deep relaxation!

Props (blocks and bolsters) will be used to support the body as we observe what arises from the practice of stillness. Our practice will be seasonally themed to honour the energy of late summer and autumn and will include some instruction around meridian theory and the energetic components that underpin the practice of Yin and how they relate to our physical and energetic bodies. Each Yin posture will be given time to percolate into the deep connective tissues (joints, ligaments and fascial networks) of the body to facilitate release and relaxation. In so doing, sensations or meditative processes may arise from the space we create with stillness.

There will be a generous allowance for breaks as well as reflection and feedback within group. Participants are encouraged to bring along a favourite blanket, woolly socks or other essential yoga kit. Props will be provided. Suggested reading and an outline of some of the postures that we explore will be provided at the end of the practice.
