A bit about Eirian...

With a fun-loving spirit, Eirian ensures her classes are playful and accessible, creating a safe environment where students can move freely, reconnect to themselves & feel empowered through their practice.

Yin Yoga is a quieting, grounding, meditative practice designed to rejuvenate the body and still the mind. It is recommended to anyone wishing to slow down, deeply stretch and open up their body.

You will begin the practice with a breathing exercise (pranayama) and short meditation leading into a series of Yin style floor postures targeting the deeper connective tissues, held passively for several minutes at a time.

In our Western culture, we often live is a very Yang-like state of being: full of stress, burn-out and depletion. During this class, we will explore how to use yoga, meditation and your breath to calm your sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) and move into your parasympathetic (rest and digest) mode.

Yin Yoga is also the perfect complement the more fast-paced, muscle contracting and blood pumping Yang like styles of Yoga and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

The postures will be simple and accessible to everyone, but this does not mean that the practice will be easy; there will be some challenging moments! Mixed level class – perfect for total beginners.”
