Yin Yoga


This class is taught by:

Kate Ryan

Kate’s Yoga journey started with a DVD in 2002 in an attempt to de-stress while studying for exams. Her love grew from there and she loves the clarity Yoga provides and the way it unifies mental and physical challenges through the breath. She is a scientist by training and Yoga was giving her what she lacked in her academic life.

In Spring 2014, Kate completed a Hatha Yoga teacher training with Tony Sanchez and her Hot Power training with Caroline and Alessandro. She firmly believes Yoga can help everyone and is particularly interested in the more internal, therapeutic benefits of the asanas.

In her spare time she can often be found dangling from some aerial circus equipment and also loves cycling, running and swimming.

Karen Iles

Karen came to yoga to alleviate back pain and stress from long hours at work. Her passion for yoga grew, and in 2013 she decided to travel to India and Nepal for 6 months, where she completed her teaching training in Sivananda Hatha Yoga.
She went on to teach yoga and meditation in Sydney and Fiji before returning to the UK. In 2015 she took further teacher training with Sarah Powers in Yin and Yang Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation.
Yoga and meditation are an integral part of her life, and she loves to share with others the benefits for body, mind and spirit.
 
Karen teaches Hatha Yoga and Yin Yoga. 

Lucie Spence

Lucie discovered yoga during her first pregnancy while living in Montreal in 2008. Having enjoyed the immediate relaxation and physical benefits of prenatal yoga, Lucie continued practicing yoga thereafter, dabbling in different yoga styles. However, it wasn't until Lucie attended her first Vinyasa class in 2011 that she became completely hooked. In 2012, Lucie completed a 200 hour Vinyasa yoga teacher training with Erika Blitz and a Yin yoga teacher training with Corina Benner, and has been teaching both Yin and Vinyasa since then.

Having a background in Medicine, Lucie is convinced of the enormous health benefits - both physical and mental - that a consistent yoga practice provides and loves seeing these health benefits manifest over time in her students.

Yin Yoga focuses on passive stretches, holding asanas (postures) for 3-5 minutes each to work gently into muscles and connective tissues, and allowing the mind to slow down. Yin Yoga releases stress, elongates muscles that we often ignore, and creates balance to our more vigorous yang practice. This class is designed to increase flexibility and joint mobility. We will stretch from head to toe while finding a bit of focus, patience and release in the mind as well as the body. Yin Yoga is particularly helpful during times of stress and fatigue and is the perfect complement all our other Yoga classes. It's also perfect for you if you run or cycle a lot and suffer from stiffness in your lower back. From stressed students to athletes seeking greater flexibility or beginners who have never put a foot on a yoga mat, this type of Yoga will help you release mind and body. Props are used in this class to help support the body while in postures to aid release and relaxation.

Yin classes are 75 minutes long. All ability levels welcome. Classes are held at room temperature. Music is played in these classes.
