beginners Yin flow
A practice designed for beginners and Yin yogis! This class balances the Yin and the Yang by combining standing positions to build strength and develop alignment with long and held, yet passive seated positions to increase flexibility. The perfect combination of movement and release.
We will explore how yoga can increase general wellbeing, how relaxation affects our body, the removal of energy blockages inside the body, how stretching works and how we can balance our yin and yang using yoga.
This is your time to learn and relax.
Ability: Beginners and Yin yogis
A dynamic class comprised of static positions exploring the range of movement in the body. Be prepared for balances, backbends, forwards and twists.
Positions (asanas) are designed to promote strength, balance and flexibility in the physical body, mobilising the spine and improving circulation through organs, glands and tissues. Using the breath to move into each posture focusses the mind, encourages energy to flow more freely around the body and brings a sense of space and clarity to your practice. Time to cleanse the body and mind and find some inner stillness!
As well as postures (asanas), this class includes breathing techniques and mindful meditation to create a wonderful sense of unity and wellbeing in the body and mind. An opportunity to explore some of the ancient philosophies of yoga, we'll consider how these might resonate with our modern lifestyles.
For intermediate and advanced practitioners. I recommend that you have some basic knowledge and practice of yoga before attending this class.
