4 Week Yin Yoga Course: 7.15pm, Friday 26th January 2018
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. Yin Yoga is a very simple practice that involves luxuriously long holds to 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 course will leave you feeling relaxed both in body and mind and enable you to ease into your weekend.
Suitable for anyone looking to learn meditation and deeply quieten both body and mind. Ideal also to complement your more active ‘yang’ yoga practice or active pursuits like running. Class open to all ages and abilities including beginners.
