Hello, yogis! I have exciting news after the successful Yin Yoga workshop earlier this month (see the photo above). I will be adding a bi-weekly Yin class at Yoga 4 All in Wales starting June 6th. For those of you who haven’t tried Yin before and are curious about what it is, the full class description is below:
This quiet, contemplative, yet challenging practice will nourish your joints and ligaments, increase flexibility and help you find peace and calm. Yin Yoga works deeply into the body with passive, longer-held poses, which target the connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, and fascia – areas that are often missed in other yoga styles, even though they account for more than 50% of our body’s flexibility!
This class consists of floor poses that mainly work the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, and lower spine, all areas that are especially rich in connective tissue. The poses are held for up to five minutes, and during this time students are encouraged to relax and find stillness and peace in the pose.
Yin is suitable for people who are new to yoga, want to balance intense workouts, and those who prefer low intensity activities. Those with joint injuries, low bone density, osteopenia or osteoporosis are encouraged to speak with their doctor before taking this practice.
Here is my new class schedule:
