Yin Yoga with Wild Minds
15, December 2022 - 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm£20.00
Join Wild Minds for this 1 and a half hour workshop where Wild Minds will guide you through the techniques of Yin Yoga and the physical and mental health benefits is possesses.
Yin yoga works deeply into our body with passive, longer-held poses. It targets the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, the deep fascia networks of the body and the meridians. This is contrast to a Yang yoga practice such as Vinyasa yoga which targets the muscles.
Energetically, Yin yoga improves the energy flow, enhancing the flow of chi in the organs. To be healthy, we need healthy organs as well as healthy muscles. Yin yoga also offers wonderful emotional and mental health benefits.
This will consist of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. The poses are held for up to five minutes, sometimes longer. Yin is almost entirely passive, although some Yin asanas contain Yang elements. During the asanas, muscles are relaxed to avoid muscle spasm, which could result from engaging muscles for long periods.
So, come along and join us for this 1 and a half hour workshop where Wild Minds will guide you through the techniques of Yin Yoga and the physical and mental health benefits is possesses.
You will need a mat, blanket, cushion or bolster; and anything else you might need to help support you through these longer hold poses in a relaxed way.
Everyone welcome from experienced Yogis to absolute beginners.
