I am holding an introductory Yin Workshop on Sunday 30th July.
This will be at the Pilates Workshop in St Albans – 7.30-9.30pm and it’s an introductory offer of £10.
Address: Magenta City House,, Ronsons Way, St Albans AL4 9PU
We will explore a range of Yin postures in a gentle, peaceful way.
For those of you wondering what Yin is all about I thought this was a good excerpt to share :
“So much so often a yoga practice is about striving, there’s that achieving attitude. Yin yoga can give us the space to slow down, a chance to stay with our experiences rather than always rushing. In a Yin yoga practice, all the postures are sitting – and all the postures are held for sustained periods of time (often five minutes). Within these long holds there is an encouragement of softness and an emphasis on relaxing muscular tissue. Through these attitudes there can be a gaining of harmony and peace: so there is a greater ease, a deeper sense of balance, feelings of calmness and acceptance.” Norman Blair
and this too
“Yin Yoga uses gentle long held postures practiced with an attitude of compassionate acceptance to awaken the more Yin parts of our physical, emotional and spiritual selves.
By promoting the flow of energy (Qi) through the energy channels (meridians) of our deep Yin core we can help bring health to our bodies and balance to our busy Yang style lives.” Biff Mithoefer
Come and relax ! P.s If you fall asleep thats ok too!!!
