Yin Yoga & Meditation with Samantha
Sink into a yin class focussed on releasing all your stresses and balancing your energy at the mid point in your week. In this class we also learn how to practice meditation together. Leave the class feeling restored and replenished, with renewed vitality and a calm, still mind.
Yin Yoga uses long, passive holds to work on the deep, dense connective tissues of the body – the fascia, tendons, ligaments and cartilage – which are difficult to energise and open. This means that it is great for easing your muscles and we recommend it particularly for easing back pain.
Almost all yoga practised today is dynamic and muscularly active, it is considered to be ‘yang’. Yin yoga balances this to bring harmony in our practice.
Yin Yoga Principals
There are three Tattvas (principals) to be observed in Samantha’s yin yoga classes:
- Come into the pose slowly finding your own edge, where there is sensation but not overwhelm (physically, emotionally or energetically).
- Become muscularly disengaged – support your body.
- Commit to holding the pose.
If you feel drawn to meditation and aren’t sure where to start, this class is a great place to begin a mediation practice.
Every class begins with a short explanation of the meditation practice chosen for the class. Samantha will lead you in a short seated practice of the meditation. Once guided into each yin pose, Samantha encourages personal exploration of the meditation, with time for reflection before entering another pose.
