What is Yin Yoga?

A Yin Yoga class consisits of a series of long held (3-5 minutes), passive floor poses that works on opening and releasing the hips, lower back, shoulders, inner thighs. These areas are rich in connective tissue (tendons, ligaments, fascia) which are often relatively stiff and begin to restrict our movement. Whilst holding the poses the body is supported by bolsters, blocks and blankets so the body relaxes and begins to let go of the tightness.

Who is Yin Yoga for?

Yin Yoga is for anyone who needs to relax, if you are tired, stressed, when your energy is erratic, you expereince neck or shoulder pain, your mind is overactive, long distance runners, cyclists or if you have a job/hobby that creates repetitive movement and restriction within your body. Yin Yoga is also amazing for you, if you have sleep problems, have rounded shoulders or tight joints.

My Yoga Teacher training.

Having intitally trained as a Body Control Pilates teacher in 2005. I taught Pilates for five years. Teaching 16 classes a week and also, offering one to one sessions to individuals with chronic back pain. I am also qualified in Polestar Reformer & other studio equipment. 

My initial Yoga 200 hour teaching training Diploma was with Sunpower Yoga in London (2012). Sunpower Yoga is a electic mix of Astanga, Ivengar, Hatha and Sivananda. 

 I have since studied for a further 2 years with Dru Yoga in Leeds (2015). Dru Yoga is a graceful, soft flowing movements, incorporating energy block release sequences, suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

More recently, I have successfully completed 50 hours teacher training certificate in Yin Yoga Therapy with the well respected Canadian based teacher Angela Jervis-Read, (2017).

Yin Yoga is series of long held (usually held between 3 to 5 minutes) passive floor poses that releases the soft connective tissue (tendons, ligaments and fascia) and helps to reverse the affect of repetitive strain and the limitations we hold within our bodies. It is also great for calming the mind and reducing the impact of stress.

I have also attended numerous Pilates and Yoga workshops over the last twelve years on Alignment, Alan Dolan's Breathwork workshop,
