While initially this style of yoga can seem quite passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes!
Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about.

**Wednesdays Gentle Pilates class is moving to Tuesdays from the first week in September - the first Tuesday class will be on Tuesday, 7th September.
Relax and explore with a beautiful practice of deep rest and renewal where we cultivate a sense of gratitude and look forward the year ahead with mindfulness and heartfulness.
Join Caroline, for a mindful experience of deep rest and nourishing movements as we move deeper into a more relaxed body and mind will then follow. We create a sense of unravelling and allow tension to seep away .....
Restorative Yoga provides deep healing for your body and mind. In this workshop, we will prepare the body and mind through some gentle restorative movements to gently release inner tension as we connect with ourselves to listen how we can replenish ourselves through a gentle nurturing practice. As we become quieter, we learn to really listen to our body and what it needs to stay balanced and well.
Through this class, your body and mind will be rejuvenated with a series of restorative movements that will gently open and bring balance to the body and mind replenishing your energy.
Restorative yoga uses props such as blankets & cushions to fully support and relax your body in a passive way while calming the nervous system to achieve balance.
Spending time in these movements, your nervous system relaxes and slows the heart rate and deeply relaxes the muscles and joints. This helps to increase the flow of fresh oxygenated blood and relaxes and quietens the overall nervous system.
These gentle postures aid the body to heal using no muscular effort. Restorative Yoga may help to reduce stress and may be very helpful for those facing challenges such as anxiety, depression or any other health issues. It may also be very beneficial for those with problems sleeping.
A regular Restorative Yoga practice also compliments an active yoga practice or those engaging with sporting activities. Anyone can practice Restorative Yoga, regardless of age, shape or physical condition, even those who are completely new to yoga.
The workshop will include gentle breathing practice and meditation and will end with a guided Relaxation (Yoga Nidra) to send you floating home.
You will leave feeling restored, energised and relaxed ready to embrace the year ahead.
Everybody is welcome to this workshop, with or without prior experience of yoga and meditation. Also suitable during pregnancy from 15 weeks.
