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 Yoga Tuition

Would you like to practise yoga but the thought of going into a Yoga studio feels you with dread, or perhaps you would just prefer to receive a tailor made yoga class?  Well you have come to the right place!
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.
With a prescriptive approach to your private tuition you could also have class that blends both Hatha and Yin or choose the style that you would prefer on the day of your class.
With 28 years of Yoga practise and teaching classes, workshops and retreats since 2004 you are in safe hands.  One step at a time you will learn all the basic movements and principles to each yoga posture leading to a more in-depth understanding of how Yoga feels in your body and experience the stillness of deep relaxation of guided relaxation and meditation practise.
Due to covid-19, please bring your own yoga mat, equipment and blankets.

The Peaceful Yogi Mini Retreat

Be soothed with 1:2:1 care from yogi and natural therapist, Sarah Grattan. This half day mini retreat during your stay at Witherdens Hall Spa, includes prescriptive Yoga, the healing energy of Reiki and the stillness of Meditation to calm and centre the mind.

Private Yoga Class
You can choose either Hatha to get your heart pumping a little harder, or the slower, gentler Yin Yoga, or have a more prescriptive class by mixing the two styles together.

Reiki Healing
Reiki is a natural healing energy therapy originating from Japan. Lying fully clothed and listening to music, Reiki allows you to go deeper into a meditative state where your own natural healing ability is activated and accelerated. Each session delivers a sense of connection, relaxation, balance and a feeling of being deeply nourished.

Learn and experience the stillness of meditation. Try different techniques to practise when you’re at home and find which suits you. We will also practise some yogic breathing techniques that help to calm and centre the mind.

​Your Mini Retreat is a 4 hour package – £170.00
