Yin Yoga and Meditation Workshop

Yin Yoga is a gentle, slow-paced yoga practice that can help you to deepen your range of motion. It has a specific focus, which is to release the connective tissue of the body. Through this deeper access to the ligaments, fascia and joints, we stimulate the energetic flow within the body. In our Yin Yoga workshop we will practice floor-based poses in a warm candlelit studio. These poses can be held for up to five minutes, depending on your level of experience. By holding these poses, we encourage relaxation and release in both the mind and the body. We will finish this yoga practice with a Yoga Nidra meditation (yogic sleep). You will leave feeling stretched, calm and relaxed.

Generally speaking any yoga where you practice Asana (poses) and Pranayama (yogic breathing) is Hatha yoga.

This is the most common form of yoga practised in the West and has many forms. Here is a brief outline of some of them:

Ashtanga (vinyasa) yoga:
Ashtanga yoga originated in Mysore and is a dynamic flowing form of yoga. Synchronizing breath and movement. Heating the body from the inside out, purifying the blood and removing toxins

Iyengar yoga:
Many poses in the BKS Iyengar system are similar to those of Ashtanga. The focus in this practice is on alignment and poses are sometimes held for long periods of time. The use of props is encouraged in this type of yoga.

Yin yoga:
