Yin Yoga is a gentle and calming practice. Must poses are floor based and are characterised by long held static poses (3-5 min long) that stimulate the connective tissue in the body.
Yin yoga improves range of motion and flexibility by stimulating myofascial tissue.
Aids in sports recovery and sports-related injury prevention.
What do you need?

We use our props (pillows, strap, blanket) to help make the poses as comfortable as we can.
I will show alternative poses.
Through the class I will speak about the target area of the pose for example for the quads, hamstrings, neck.
No pose is prefect, look to me for guidance but yin yoga encourages you to adapt each pose to suit you as an individual. Everyone bodies are unique.
