History Trivia: Gin & Tonic was introduced by the army of the British East India Company in India. It was discovered that Quinine could be used to prevent & treat malaria. Soldiers in India were given Gin rations & adding Quinine sweetened with sugar made sense at the time.
Well we won't be doing this in the "Yin & Tonic" Workshop/Class, even though some of you may think it might help take away that dull achy feeling we sometimes feel in a Yin Yoga Class!!
Description: In this 2 Hour Yin Class, Trained Yin Yoga Teacher Alan Mileham, (E-RYT 500, USA) is your "Yin" & Yoga Passage's fantastic RMT'S Matthew Tuer & Jolaine St. Pierre are your "Tonic". We will start of the class with a brief explanation of Yin Yoga, then a Meditation & Pranayama, before delving into Traditional Yin Postures. During the class our RMT'S will go around the room and give gentle massages. Due to the nature of Yin Yoga and how long the postures are held, which can be anywhere from 3 - 5 minutes, our RMT'S will never push or force you deeper in a posture, but again offering gentle massages. We will end the class with a slightly longer Savasana, to allow the RMT'S to get in that final and well deserved massage.
Alan, Matthew, & Jolaine promise your "Yin & Tonic" experience will be gently stirred and not shaken!
