Online Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra

Third Thursday of the month 19:00-20:30

Yin yoga is all about holding asana (yoga poses) for longer than you might in a normal yoga class. This gives us the opportunity to release and surrender into a pose, slowly and gently settling into our body. Poses may be held for 3 - 4 minutes, possibly longer, which means we can work into the joints whilst the muscles release and let go. Yin allows us to tune into our feminine energies, cool and hidden, reflective and passive. This is the opposite of Yang energy, masculine, hot and dynamic. There can be no yin without yang - a sense of balance is required to bring a sense of well being and harmony.

Whilst the primary focus of the class is yin yoga, elements of yang yoga will be included to allow for the holistic nature of yoga to shine through.

The class will conclude with a deep relaxation of at least twenty minutes, giving you the chance to restore and soothe your energy levels. If you feel depleted, relaxation will boost your energy. If you feel overwhelmed by too many things to do, relaxation will allow you to settle, reprioritise and refocus.

This yin yoga class is ideal for anyone new to yin yoga, or those who have prior experience. The class will be gentle and meditative, including pranayama (breathing practices), meditation, yin and yang yoga, before culminating with Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation.)

Classes online held on the first Monday and third Thursday of every month.

Please prepare a comfortable area at home with your yoga mat, a few pillows, cushions and a blanket handy. You could light some candles, and play gentle music in the background so make it even more lovely and soothing !

Guide to Zoom classes

Online classes are a great way to continue with your yoga practice, or to start a practice if you've never done any yoga before. You can join a class in the comfort of your own home, and even wear your PJ's if that's what you're most comfortable in. Classes are conducted using the Zoom platform, which is extremely user friendly.

A few things to consider before the class starts:-

1) Ensure you have everything ready before class starts - yoga mat, block, blanket, yoga belt (a dressing gown belt or scarf will do if you don't have a yoga belt) and a pillow

2) Login to Zoom about 10 minutes before class starts so you can have a chat, and ensure your technology is working - call Kate if you have any problems

3) Switch your landline and any other wifi devices off to maximise your broadband capacity

4) Only practice to level that feels comfortable for you - please inform Kate of any concerns, either by email before class, or using the Chat function on Zoom during class.

5) Let Kate know if you have any health concerns before the class

6) If you are new to Yoga with Kate, please complete the medical questionnaire before joining class, and read the Disclaimer below.

7) Once the class has started, you can play music in the background at home - it won't disturb anyone else.

8) Classes may be recorded, but will be set up so that only Kate can be seen to protect your privacy.  Class recordings will be available to watch through the BookWhen system and Vimeo.

9) Enjoy it ! Once the class has started, hopefully it will soon feel as though you are in a regular class.
