Yin Yoga Workshops 2017/18

Five Sunday mornings to release into the stillness of Yin Yoga.

In this series we will explore the beneficial effects of yin yoga poses on the deeper tissues that surround the joints to increase mobility. Each workshop will also highlight a set of meridians that is influenced by the shapes we take.

The workshops start with an introduction to its particular theme, followed by a full yin yoga session to experience the theory in real time.
The series is designed to include all elements of yin yoga. However each workshop is a balanced unit in and of itself, so they can be done individually just as well. They are suitable for all abilities, though some experience of yoga is recommended.
