Yin Yoga Workshop | IN STUDIO

Still the body to still the mind with a deliciously relaxing and meditative afternoon of Yin Yoga. Long-holds of floor-based postures encourage the deeper muscles and connective tissue to release. As we slow down space is created for quiet self-reflection.

Yin Yoga Workshop | IN STUDIO

with Norman Blair in South London

Yin yoga is an increasingly popular style of practicing. The reality is that many of us lead fast-paced, demanding and intensely stressful lives. We can seem like graceful water birds: gliding serenely on the surface while in fact we are paddling frantically below to stay afloat. We are so familiar with tension and tightness that rarely do we consciously realise the deep need for relaxing and releasing – for ways of reducing the significant stress that we experience. 

Yin yoga gives us the space to slow down and stay with our experiences rather than always rushing and striving to achieve. Yin yoga is a practice in which floor-based postures are held for several minutes. Within these long holds there is an encouragement of softness and an emphasis on relaxing muscular tissue. Through this stillness, we can become aware of the various sensations within the body and the fluctuations of mind, emotions and breath. This brings a sense of harmony and peace: so there is a greater ease, a deeper sense of balance, feelings of calmness and acceptance. The Yin practice invites us to explore our inner landscape with qualities of self-reflection, acceptance and equanimity. We learn to pay attention to what is, as it is with an attitude of kindness. Life is precious and a practice such as this can give us space for appreciating the great privilege of being this body. Yin Yoga is beneficial and suitable for all levels of practitioner.

Norman Blair is one of the most experienced yin yoga teachers in the country. He has been teaching these monthly workshops since 2003.
