There will be detailed examination of poses, examples of sequencing, modifications and contraindications and plenty of time for participants to evaluate their own experience. The reasons for practicing and the immense benefits of this form of yoga will also be explained. 

This is a wonderful opportunity for practitioners to deepen their knowledge of Yin yoga in a small group (limited to 25) with one of the most experienced yin teachers in the UK. Three three-hour sessions will be led by external teachers: on anatomy, on meridians and on meditation.
