Yin yoga: Deep stretching and relaxation
with Clare Wener
Saturday 1st February 2014, 3 -5PM £25
Yin is the perfect partner to ashtanga -– gently opening your body to
improve your flexibility. The practice encourages you to let go of any
goals and ambition and just ‘be’ in the pose, finding stillness and deep
It’s a form of yoga that works on stretching the body’s connective tissue
in the pelvis, hips and spine. Instead of getting ourselves into the
most pretzel-like yoga postures, the yin challenge is the duration over
which the poses are held – for around five minutes.
Clare teaches yin yoga in London and Hertfordshire. She aims to make
yoga fun and accessible for everyone – no matter what their age or
ability. Visit shantayoga.co.uk to find out more about Clare.
