Yoga class descriptions:
Yin Yoga is mindful movement. Time is taken as you enter each pose to understand what joints you are working with, how those joints move, and what might be causing strain or limiting your range of motion.
Yin Yoga includes reclined, seated, and standing postures. Expect gentle, fluid movements and sustained stretches with support from blocks, bolsters, and the ground beneath you. Rather than pushing or forcing, you’ll work in a more relaxed way with lots of time to transition in and out of the postures and pauses between the postures to feel changes in your body and breath and the flow of your mental and emotional energy.
As you work through layers of accumulated tension, you may find that your sleep improves, your immune system becomes more robust, and you recover more easily from stress.
This is a graceful, flowing style of yoga that emphasises coordination and connection. Sequences include reclined, seated, and standing postures and explore different ways to twist, turn, bend, reach, and balance. I offer a slower flow that builds heat from within and allows time to feel the transition from one movement to the next. As you enliven the flow of blood, breath, and Qi your movements become more graceful and more purposeful – expressing your full potential. Some movements will test you but you will always be offered intelligent progressions so you can honour you own needs within a group class setting.
