On the Eve of Mothering Sunday, this workshop aims to help you cultivate gratitude. Whether you come with your Mum, are a Mum yourself or just want to cultivate appreciation for life, this workshop will help you disconnect from negative thought patterns in favour of being present and find delight and thanks for where you are right now.
In this 2-hour journey into Yin Yoga you will first be introduced to mindfulness meditation, to help develop awareness as you begin to slow down your body and calm your mind.
We will then move into Yin Yoga poses that target the connective tissue and joints in the body. The passive Yin Yoga practice will be an extension to the meditation as it requires as much from the mind as the body. Passively holding the yin yoga poses for between 3-5 minutes will challenge the mind to process negative thought patterns in a compassionate and accepting way. The Yin practice will help to increase flexibility and range of motion in a deep and effective way, help increase bone density, and enhance vitality and overall heath. In this yoga workshop, you will experience how the Yin Yoga practice gets past the muscles and targets the connective ‘yin’ tissues – joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia that wraps around your joints, muscles and organs. The Yin yoga poses will simultaneously promote and maintain mobility as connective tissue is safely and therapeutically stretched, stimulated and strengthened.
The strong meditative thread through this workshop will be further enhanced by completing the journey with a Yoga Nidra, a deep relaxation. This guided relaxation is a method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation.
This workshop will have you feeling relaxed both in body and mind so that you emerge feeling receptive, rejuvenated and in a state of contentment and well-being. You will leave having planted the seeds of gratitude and compassion within your heart and feel renewed to step back into life.
Suitable for anyone looking to learn meditation and deeply quieten both body and mind. Ideal also to complement a more active ‘yang’ yoga practice or active pursuits like running. This beautiful calming and deeply relaxing mindfulness meditation and yin yoga workshop will help you relax and combat busy lives. Open to all abilities: both those beginning yoga and more experienced yogis will enjoy this workshop.

2 Week Yin Yoga Course: 7.15pm, Friday 20th July
End your busy week with this beautiful calming and deeply relaxing mindfulness meditation and yin yoga class.
Mindfulness meditation will help you relieve stress through exploring the habits of your mind.
The passive Yin Yoga practice requires as much from the mind as the body as simple stretches are held for between 2-5 minutes challenging the mind to process negative thought patterns in a compassionate and accepting way. Body sensations are navigated by building inner stamina and endurance and developing a mindfulness based meditation practice. As a result, the entire body experiences deep rest.
The long holds in Yin Yoga get past the muscles and target the connective ‘yin’ tissues - joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia that wraps around your joints, muscles and organs. Yin yoga will simultaneously promote and maintain mobility as connective tissue is safely and therapeutically stretched, stimulated and strengthened. This Yin Yoga practice will change the way you go through life, creating the internal peace required to “respond” instead of “react". Leave feeling relaxed both in body and mind.
