“I felt in need of a great pilgrimage, so I sat still for 3 days” – Kabir Das There are three central ingredients to a yin yoga practice: THE EDGE - discovering an appropriate amount of sensation in a yoga posture STILLNESS - marinating in the shape to get a taste of what a meditative state is like TIME - holding the posture for a while; sometimes a minute, sometimes up to five We are capable of going on an immense adventure by being in our own company, yet it is an advanced practice to simply sit with ourselves and listen to the contents of the mind without reacting. The beauty of yin yoga - where we target the connective tissues of the body in deep, challenging stretches to unlock stagnant energy - is that the stationary aspect of it is incredibly calming for the mind. Manageable bursts of focus that invite us to switch more fully on to what is present, rather than tune out of reality. This three hour workshop will include a little mobilisation to warm your bones and an extended yin sequence that targets the upper body (heart and small intestine are the organs associated with this season according to Traditional Chinese Medicine). There will be plenty of space for resting; during the final part of our workshop we will take a yoga nidra for cooling and calming the nervous system. This is a type of meditation accessed through deep relaxation - there is no way to do it wrong and it can be transformative for managing energy levels, anxiety and stress. Class sizes are limited - a small, friendly group so that you are given the individual attention you deserve, modifications will be offered if you are working with body quirks/injuries. Teas and chocolates provided. For more information on what to bring, equipment and Covid-19 safety, please see FAQs.
