Slow, simple yin yoga is the class to choose if you want to calm the mind and stretch the body.
Yin is a form of yoga that stretches the connective tissue in the key areas of the pelvis hips and spine, gently opening your body to improve your flexibility.
It allows you to just 'be' in the pose, finding stillness and deep relaxation.
In this workshop we will explore the basics of Yin Yoga practice. Instead of getting ourselves into the most pretzel like asanas the Yin challenge is the duration over which poses are held - three to five minutes! The time spent in these postures is much like meditation.
Be prepared to discover deep feelings, sensations and emotions. We don't use the body to get into a pose, we use a pose to get into the body!
Weekly classes and monthly taster workshops are available from our Sunderland studio.
Single Session Credit - We recommend this option for first time users. Although it is a slightly more expensive option, you don't have to commit yourself to purchasing a whole course of lessons. The advantage is that this option allows you to try out your chosen class to see if you like it or not. The disadvantage is that it is more expensive and you only get 7 days to use your lesson from the date of purchase. This means that you have to wait until the last minute to book your chosen class, which may mean that it is already fully booked if it is a popular class.
Six Session Credits - We recommend this option for regular clients who have already tried out our different classes. You get 8 weeks to use up your 6 credits. You can use your 6 credits for any class on any day or time, with any instructor and for all of the different movement methods. The advantage of this option is that it is cheaper than a single session but you are able to book up for your chosen class up to 8 weeks in advance. This means that you are likely to be guaranteed your place on your chosen class if a particular class is very popular.
Twelve Session Credits - We recommend this option for regular clients who have already tried out our different classes. This option is designed for students who wish to attend classes at least twice a week. Effectively, you get your second class at half price. However, you only get 8 weeks to use up your 12 credits. This means that the system forces you to come to at least two sessions a week. You can use your 12 credits for any class on any day or time, with any instructor and for all of the different movement methods. The system allows you to book up for your chosen classes up to 8 weeks in advance. This means that you are likely to be guaranteed your place on your chosen class if a particular class is very popular.
