Yin yoga is a way of working our deep tissues and keeping our joints healthy. It is also a deeply meditative practice as the poses are each held for a few minutes fully supported by props to take away any strain.

This can be a challenging form of yoga as it can be a struggle to still our body and mind but once this challenge is overcome, there is a wonderful feeling of stillness and peace. The practice allows us to connect with our bodies, being aware of tightness and limitations so that we can work with them rather than against them. It is also a fantastic opportunity for self reflection.

Yoga Nidra has the potential to completely relax the body and takes our mind to the same state as when we are in a deep dreamless sleep but still with a level of awareness. As well as a form of complete rest for the body and mind, it is also a deeply spiritual practice.

The workshop will begin with pranayama (breathing practices) to start stilling the mind and settling the body. We will then come into our yin yoga practice allowing time to find the variation of each posture that works best for each of us. Towards the end of the session, we will use yoga nidra to fully absorb our yoga practice by relaxing the body and mind fully. Finally we will ground ourselves using all of our senses in preparation for going back into our everyday lives while still maintaining a feeling of calm.

This session will make the most of the early winter darkness and using candles to create a calm and meditative atmosphere.

This workshop is suitable for all levels. Advance booking essential.
