More about Yin Yoga:
I love Yin Yoga because the body is working hard, making changes on a deep level while you simply lie there and relax!
Of course it’s not as simple as that: because the effects go deep it can be challenging for body and mind (how long you stay in the posture is up to you!). The postures are held in a supportive way so the emphasis is on allowing the muscles, tendons and ligaments and fascia to let go of tightness and tension – that can challenge the mind to stay with the sensations we experience! But the benefits are great – increased flexibility (athletes find it so effective its practice is growing fast), finding a stillness within, better circulation and energy flow through the body so we feel refreshed and alive afterwards.

Redwick Village Hall, NP26 3EA

I’m excited to announce that from next month I’ll be running monthly yoga sessions on Saturday mornings of 2 hours each. This will allow us to go into some aspects of yoga a little bit further and enables you to have another chance at a yoga session that perhaps doesn’t clash with work. And the venue is the loveliest, light, bright, quiet and warm village hall in the area I’ve found! Just 15 minutes from Chepstow along the M48 and Steelwork’s Road!
To book a place either message me below, text me (07872571934) or let me know in class.
Remember if you take up the ‘Bring a friend offer’ you’ll both save £2!
I’m looking forward to doing yoga with you soon… Namaste!

Despite a late flurry of interest, I’m afraid I’ve had to cancel this Workshop. I know life changes but please let me know as soon as you can if you will/would like to attend so I’m able to assess if a Workshop is viable. Mundane practicalities have to be considered, such as hiring of the hall! If there’s an opportunity later in the year, I’ll run it then. Watch this space…
