Try Meditation through Yin Yoga

Most of us will sigh a breath of ‘I wish’ at the idea of taking time to relax and meditate. Life, especially at this time of the year, is hectic. But these are the times that we actually need to take time out.

Yin Yoga targets the deep connective tissues of the body, helping to regulate the flow of energy in the body. Relax into passive postures whilst unwinding from your day. The longer time spent in postures allows a deeper, meditative focus.

Expect to experience a calming of your mind and body, increased mobility in your joints, a deeper relaxation, lower stress levels, regulated energy and a better ability to sit for meditation.

During these classes, you will learn tips and techniques to de-stress and calm your mind, and renew your energy at any time of the day.

Prioritise yourself this term, and book in for the Recreation Centre’s Meditation through Yin Yoga small group training course. Running for six weeks, it’s the perfect way to reward yourself at the end of the week. You’ll notice positive changes in yourself – mentally, emotionally and physically.
