REST IN THE SANCTUARY OF SELF
Yin classes are great for beginners and experienced yogi’s who would like to work on mobility, flexibility and experience quiet mindfulness. A simple, spacious and safe practice for every BODY that will help you to slow down, tune in, and let go.
MINDFUL GENTLE PRACTICE
During this class you are invited to slowly and mindfully enter a Yin pose (shape with the body) using the breath to stimulate the flow of chi, otherwise know as energy or life force.
Poses, usually floor-based are be held for 3-5 minutes. The use of props and blankets is encouraged to help you remain still, reduce any muscular effort and allow gravity to take hold.
THEURAPEUTIC IN NATURE
While remaining focused on the sensations promoted by the pose, you will provide deep nourishment to the Yin tissues – the connective tissue (fascia), joints and ligaments – that can’t be accessed in any other form of Yoga or movement.
Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the deeper, longer Yin poses will help to release blockages in the meridians, similar to a long acupuncture session!
Yin Yoga classes with Simone will also offer breath work, meditation, self-enquiry and hand-picked tools, ancient wisdom, philosophy and mindfulness pulled from the East.
Simone invites you to gather in this safe space to discover a new-found sense of peace, clarity and freedom within.
YIN SOUND JOURNEY w SIMON
Simon, also a Yin Yoga trained instructor, plans to offer our yogi community a few Yin Sound Journey’s this year. Integrating his love of Yin Yoga and music/sound as medicine for the modern world.
He is also the sub for this class when the time calls. A regular class of his own is his intention, however his focus is currently set on sharing positive, inspirational energy as a school teacher to his 11 and 12 year old intermediate students!
“Yin Yoga with its long, slow stretches gives the chance for the muscles to calm down and then the fascia to stretch and release – this can facilitate the kind of re-patterning that leads to lasting release of chronic holdings, and in many cases, a profound change of mind and body.”
