Yin Yoga

"The quieter you become, the more you can hear" - Ram Das

About Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is merely a way of describing a slow mindful yoga practise, where each posture is held between 3 – 5 minutes.  The mind and body are allowed to unravel multi levels of tension both known and unknown.  As we move gently into the soft edge of a stretch, that point where we feel the body is stretched but not to its full capacity, it’s here that tension begins to melt away without being forced.

As the body moves into relaxation so does the mind, this practise is introspective, your eyes are closed and the mind focused on the natural rhythm of the breath. We begin to question how the body feels in each moment and then the magic of stillness occurs. There is a silence in-between the thoughts, its where clarity and rejuvenation happens and the more you practise the more easily your body and mind relax into this silence, which is always within us…Yin yoga is simply another way to reconnect us to our true nature, our true self.

Private Tuition

Would you like to practise yoga but not in a busy class and prefer direct guidance from me?  Great, we would begin by understanding what you wanted to achieve and look at how you are able to move and where, if any, restrictions are being held in your body.  The classes then become tailor made around you, they could be either traditional Hatha Yoga class or Yin Yoga class, depending on how you feel on the day.  It is also possible that the  class could be a blend of both yoga styles in a more prescriptive way…..feeling energised? then a stronger Hatha Yoga class, feeling the need to turn your attention inwards and rest in longer stretches? then Yin Yoga will be the class.  All classes have guided meditations, Asana (posture) practise and chanting.  With 28 years of Yoga practise and 16 years of teaching experience you are coming to a safe place to restore peace and unravel tightness and tension.  Om shanti.
Due to covid-19, I now request that clients please bring your own Yoga mat, equipment and blankets.
