WHAT IS YIN YOGA?

Updated: Mar 18

This Yin class is like no other, I have created these wonderful new courses that run for 6 - 7 weeks.

They enable each practitioner to go a deeper. I build each session with a particular focus, often using the chakras and koshas as a guiding light but often with a different theme and focus.

Rest during a Yin Class

The Yin class is a beautiful way to catch your breath in the middle of the week. The space is lit with soft salt lamps and candles, plush blankets and props are provided to help you feel supported. I also incorporate aromatherapy during the session.


I've added Nidra and Sound to leave you floating on air.


Yoga Nidra is a very specific guided meditation, often with a gentle focus on the breath and a full body scan and visualisation.


Sound is used at the end of the session to really tie all the teaching together, for example if we are focusing on the root charka, safety and security, I play the C4 bowl, utilising the frequency to really promote a feeling of well-being before clients head home.


So, who's it for?

Anyone seeking: Calm, stress relief, flexibility, mindfulness, self knowledge, rest and nurture.

It's a really accessible practice, not necessarily easy, but it builds awareness of the body, the breath and the mind.


So, What is Yin?

A Yin yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, and lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. The poses are held for up to five minutes, sometimes longer. Yin is almost entirely passive, although some Yin asanas contain Yang elements. Working the fascia of the body, Josephine draws on mindfulness practices, compassion and kindness to leave you feeling held, restored and light.

Not only do these classes help you feel better, mentally and physically, but there is also a wonderful community element, I love that the people who practice with me regularly are warm, kind and open. The atmosphere is supportive, focused but also light. We have space to share and laugh.
