Hatha Flow Yoga classes start with some pranayama breathing practice then move into gentle stretching and strengthening postures, followed by an easy flow pattern which may focus on hips, shoulders, lower back, or legs. Some postures are held for a length of time using breath work to take your body and mind deeper into the asana and its benefits.

Yin Yoga Workshop Kildare
Meditation & Yin Yoga

Mindfulness Meditation & Yin Yoga

5 Week Yin Yoga Course: 6.15pm, Thursday 8th July 2021 (Wk1 & 2: Online, Wk 3-5: In-studio) 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. In the event of a Covid-19 lockdown, Yin Yoga classes will be delivered online via Zoom.
