Yin Yoga with Danni Walters – Fridays 6.30pm

Yin Yoga is a gentle and deeply nourishing style of yoga that originates from the Chinese health and spiritual practices of Taoism. Yin yoga stimulates specific meridian lines within the body to cultivate healthy energetic flow and balance within the bodies organs and systems. Yin consists of gentle, supported and relaxed poses held for 3 – 5 minutes on average. The long held poses serve to safely stimulate the deep layers of connective tissue to restore and maintain healthy mobility and flexibility. Our connective tissue also holds trapped emotions, patterns, trauma and tension in the body which can be slowly released in a safe and nurturing way through this practice. The calm and peaceful approach of this practice celebrates stillness and offers the perfect complement to our busy and hectic lifestyles. Yin yoga is perfect for anyone at any level and offers an enjoyable and simple way to reduce stress and cultivate balance and well being for body, mind and soul. These classes are led by Danni Walters, click here for more info and booking.
