Yin Yoga focusses on the connective tissue (ligaments, tendons, fascia) and bones which are harder, stiffer and dryer compared to muscles which are more fluid filled, elastic and soft. In order to access the connective tissue, the muscles need to be cold. The postures are held passively and longer without a specific alignment to create healthy stress on the tissues and bones to further strengthen them. Yin Yoga allows to enter a subtler realm of the yoga practice and access the energetic body to prepare for contemplation and meditation. (45 mins)

The Apanaveda School of Yoga, falls under the Hatha Yoga umbrella. It is a delicious blend of Pranayama (breathing techniques) to balance the autonomic nervous system, effortlessly taking you from fight or flight (stress response) over to rest and digest (relax response) which in turn has a calming effect on the mind. During the pranayama practice the lung capacity increases, as does the strength of the lungs themselves and the respiratory muscles, by the end of the pranayama practice the physical body is then in a good place to start moving mindfully. The majority of postures are breath led and participants are highly encouraged to listen to their own bodies, with the eyes closed and the awareness turned inward, with no expectation or judgement, just kindness and compassion to themselves. The class ends with a beautiful guided meditation, permission to completely let go of the outside world. (45 mins)
