I am super excited to let you know that I’ve now received my Yin Yoga teaching certification from the British Wheel of Yoga!
Yin Yoga is a practice that focuses on unlocking the body’s full range of motion through deep stretching of the connective tissues, fascia and ligaments. In our fast-paced lives, it’s easy for our bodies to become stiff and tight, leading to decreased flexibility and mobility. This is where Yin Yoga comes in to work its magic.
In my Deep Stretch Yin class, we will move through a series of floor-based postures that are designed to release tension and open up tight areas of the body. By holding these poses for longer periods of time (3-5 minutes), we will work with our body’s natural range of motion, gradually increasing flexibility, improving circulation, and reducing stress.
This practice is beneficial for everyone, whether you are an athlete looking to improve sports performance or someone seeking greater ease and flexibility in your daily life or regular yoga practice. Deep Stretch Yin is also the perfect complement to a regular vinyasa practice, helping to balance and restore the body after more dynamic movement.
No prior yoga experience is necessary, as modifications and adjustments will be offered to make the practice accessible to all levels. All you need is a yoga mat, and you’re ready to join me on this journey of deep stretching and self-care.
I am excited to share the power of Yin Yoga with all of you and help you experience the incredible benefits of this practice. I hope you can join me on the mat and unlock the full potential of our bodies. Join me for Deep Stretch Yin and discover the profound effects of deep stretching for yourself.
The first Deep Stretch Yin Class takes place at the Barn in Houlton on Saturday 13 May. These are one-off classes, roughly every 6 weeks. Book your space now.
