Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.
Yin yoga sometimes has a reputation for being ‘easy’ or ‘boring’ – this is totally not the case! Once you start practicing and building that relationship with YIN & YOURSELF you will realize how challenging but wonderful it is to just be still.
This mindful movement of just BEING is the challenge itself!!!
Allowing yourself to disconnect from the constant distraction of the beautiful monkey mind is how you learn to sit with yourself in the beautiful space of Yin Yoga. The key to this practice is a continual connection to the breath and staying present within the pose.
Yin yoga is a deeper slower form of yoga which targets deep into the connective tissue in the body including the ligaments, fascia, bones, and joints.
Yin will facilitate in your recovery/rest days & will help to prevent injuries of the joints,muscles or ligaments. Yin is as intense or as deep as your edge will allow you to go. You will continue to develop the more you build your relationship with the practice,the deeper your journey the greater the results. Plus you get to rest that racing mind in the process.
Yin Yoga is the perfect complement to your Yang style training routine ie: weightlifting,running,cardio,martial arts what ever style of physical training you enjoy.
At my Yin yoga class I like to use a range of modalities to enhance your healing experience. I work mainly with the energy centres of the body known as the chakras through meditation ,visualisation, colour healing, sound healing, reiki healing and empowering mantra.
Yin yoga involves passive stretching – most of which happens on the floor with your eyes closed as to internalize the practice. Yin yoga encourages you completely relax into the pose, connecting to your breath while letting go and softening the muscle in order to move closer to the bone. In this way, it offers deeper access to our physical & energetic bodies than we can normally access in a more yang style practice.
Hence the emotional release... Absolute bliss...

Yin Yoga is for you if you are tired and craving energy or you’re over-stimulated and have too much energy. It balances our energetic body.
Yin yoga is an amazing addition to your regular exercise program, preventing injury and allowing the muscles to contract and expand, getting deep into the connective tissue. No other exercise can do this.
If you have a regular practice, always consult your midwife or doctor before you continue with your practice.. However during pregnancy, the intention in a woman’s practice should not be to go further into poses than she has ever gone before. Range of motion is not the goal now; the baby’s health and the woman’s own comfort is key. Because the connective tissues will start to become softer, it may be easy to overstress the ligaments and cartilage and possibly stretch and damage them. Whatever range of motion she had before becoming pregnant, she should be happy to stick with that—no need to try to go further.
Always seek medical advice before starting anything new when pregnant.
Yes, all classes need booking in advance, partly for managing numbers, and partly to let people know if a class isn’t running for some reason, e.g. holidays etc.
Something comfortable and stretchy – it doesn’t need to be special “yoga” clothing, gym wear or lyrca. Leggings or joggers for ladies, joggers or shorts for men. Some ladies prefer a sports bra, but it isn’t necessary.
