45 mins sessions. Yin yoga is a slow paced, floor-based class with long-held (from 1 up 5 mins) poses to apply healthy amount of tension on the joints in the body to stretch the fascial tissues within the joints to strengthen them. Practiced with an active yang practice like yoga flow or other forms this offers a complete and well-rounded practice to maintain a healthy balance in the body.

Suitable for all levels. Props are used and advantageous to the yin practice but I will give as many options for alternative things/poses without props where possible.

My list below of the prop-kit to have to hand is:

  1. Yoga Bolster (round) or a a thick rolled up blanket
  2. Two or three yoga blankets or towels
  3. Two wooden bricks or thick hand-back books
  4. Yoga strap or any household belt
  5. Eye Pillow (optional)
£5.00

A 60 mins strong alignment focussed class with a focus on moving into posing through an exploration of body and breath awareness. Poses will be held for longer than a flow class.
