Type of Event
In this workshop led by Paula Hines we will use Yin and Restorative Yoga to bring sore and tired muscles back to life. Yin and Restorative yoga are great complements to an active routine. These practices can be used for recovery from physical training such as running, cycling and endurance sports as well as being an ideal way to de-stress and re-energise after a hectic day.
Yin and restorative yoga are both deep, meditative practices which activate the parasympathetic nervous system (calming the body's fight/flight response). Poses can typically be held for 3 to 10 minutes or longer. In yin, the focus is on moving deeper into the connective tissues of the body (ligaments, tendons and fascia – the cling-film-like ‘tissue’ which holds our muscles together), while in restorative the emphasis is more on facilitating physiological rest to promote deep relaxation and recovery.
Come along for two hours of renewal. Your muscles and fascia will thank you!
Open to all levels except pregnant students.
